History in Google Earth

This past week, just in time for Earth Day, Google revealed something interesting in Google Earth.

It’s the option to view the earth in a time lapse format for the past 37 years. My, things have changed.

When you land on the page, there are five highlighted, high profile topics to be played. And, they’re worth it.

It can be used further in the classroom. Certainly, the topics highlighted are starting points for great classroom discussions.

But, what around the neighbourhood?

Since this sits in Google Earth, it’s a snap to move around and zero in on your community to see what growth has happened there. Depending upon the location, you’ll enjoy high resolution imagery.

To be honest, I knew that there was a great deal of growth in our community. But, it’s very humbling to see the spread before my very eyes.
