It has been updated with new imagery, allowing users to visualize changes in the Earth's surface from 1984 to present day.

The feature, made from millions of satellite photos, provides a zoomable, 4D interactive map that displays the dynamic changes that have occurred on our planet over nearly four decades.

The Timelapse imagery reveals everything from irrigation systems emerging in the deserts of Egypt to meandering rivers shifting over time in the Amazon rainforest. It also shows how cities are adapting to combat climate change with offshore wind farms in Denmark and large-scale solar installations in Spain.

The feature is a valuable resource for researchers, educators, and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of our planet's changing environment. Users can also access a library of over 800 Timelapse videos for more than 300 locations at g.co/TimelapseVideos. The data for Timelapse is sourced from open and accessible data through NASA's Landsat program and the European Union's Copernicus program.
