Google Landsat Time-Lapse
A profound testament to both human progression and the effects of industrialism, Landsat is a project involving data from eight separate satellites that have orbited the Earth since 1972. Google partnered with the project to sift through the millions of pictures Landsat has taken since its launch, stitching the best ones together to produce a publicly available time-lapse charting environmental changes over the past two decades. This in-depth project pulls urban development, melting glaciers and population growth into a beautiful, easily understandable mosaic. Enjoy as the developers of the project elaborate on Google Landsat’s full capabilities.
