Google has updated its Timelapse feature and it's a great way to jump into any location and track how it has changed over the years. With the update the period got another four years of data — now the range is from 1984 to 2016. Another part of the update is that the images got a better quality.
The project was launched back in 2013 when Google joined forces with NASA, Time and the United States Geological Survey. Over 5 million satellite images were acquired over the past three decades by 5 different satellites according to Google.
