Explore a global timelapse of our planet, constructed from Landsat satellite imagery. This timelapse from 1984 to 2012 captures the rapid growth in the fastest growing cites in the United States over the past two decades.
Each frame of the timelapse map is constructed from a year of Landsat satellite data, constituting annual 1.7-terapixel snapshot of the Earth at 30-meter resolution. The Landsat program, managed by the USGS, has been acquiring images of the Earth's surface since 1972. Landsat provides critical scientific information about our changing planet.
Talking about the time-lapse animation released today, engineering manager for Goggle's Earth Engine & Earth Outreach program, Rebecca Moore wrote in a blog post, "We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public".
