The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Turning back time with Google

Let's do the time lapse!

The busy crew at Google has answered the question, "What would a satellite view of Las Vegas fast-forwarded over almost 30 years look like?"

The answer can be found via Timelapse.

There is more to see at the interactive site. Watch the deforestation of Brazil or the shrinking of an Alaskan glacier, among the subjects that get the treatment.

It's pretty cool, albeit incomplete. Other cities are searchable on the Earth Engine, but they don't get timelapsed; the searcher is sent to a regular map.
