Earth Engine Timelapse

Earth Engine Timelapse


Working with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA and TIME, we’re releasing more than a quarter-century of images of Earth taken from space, compiled for the first time into an interactive time-lapse experience. We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public.

Built from millions of satellite images and trillions of pixels, you can explore this global, zoomable time-lapse map as part of TIME’s new Timelapse project. View stunning phenomena such as the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier, the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon and urban growth in Las Vegas from 1984 to 2012

  3. Корпорация Google запустила проект под названием Google Earth Engine. Целью проекта является возможность увидеть, как изменился ландшафт нашей планеты за последние 40 лет. Для этого были использованы снимки Земли, полученные со спутников NASA Landsat, которые впоследствии объединили в видеоролики: петабайты данных обрабатываются и объединяются в небольшие видеофрагменты. Сейчас на сайте проекта пользователи смогут увидеть ежедневно обновляющуюся модель нашей планеты. Так, на Google Earth Engine можно увидеть видеолетопись вырубки тропических лесов Амазонии, высыхания Аральского моря или истощения водных ресурсов реки Конго. В Google отмечают, что данный проект способен претендовать на звание крупнейшей из всех когда-либо созданных видеокарт Земли.

  4. We need to get our social skills equal to the task of population expansion and weather change or we are toast.  Earthland : the Real and Ideal available on Amazon Books can provide the ways and means to provide the necessary expertise.  
    Economics must also expand to meet the cost of supply and demand.

  7. Too many people is the cause of all the destruction. People don't like to acknowledge the truth that there are already far too many people for this planet. A single human life consumes immense resources over their lifetime.
