Ever wonder what your favorite area looked like in the mid-80s? With Google Earth’s Timelapse feature, you can see a complete breakdown of how areas have changed, spanning from 1984 to 2018. This week, Google announced that the feature is now available for mobile devices.
Just from the few areas I’ve looked at, such as Portland, OR and San Francisco, CA, not much has changed, though, you can clearly see in the year 2000 when Oracle Park was built in SF. Back then, when I was a wee lad, it was called Pac-Bell Park. As for Portland, yeah, hardly anything has changed.
However, just look at human civilization spread across the Nevada desert like a disease. Agent Smith may have been right (Matrix reference).
This Timelapse feature is available for both desktop and mobile users, so go check it out. It’s fun!
