Our most comprehensive picture of the Earth’s changing surface. This interactive experience enabled people to explore these changes like never before—to watch the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier. D)And the impressive urban expansion of Las Vegas, Nevada. Today, we’re making our largest update to Timelapse yet, with four additional years of imagery. Petabytes of new data. And a sharper view of the Earth from 1984 to 2016. We’ve even teamed up again with our friends at TIME to give you an updated take on compelling locations. D)WE SIFTED THROUGH ABOUT THREE QUADRILLION PIXELS—THAT’S 3 FOLLOWED BY 15 ZEROES—FROM MORE THAN 5,000,000 SATELLITE IMAGES.

E)Leveraging the same techniques we used to improve Google Maps and Google Earth back in June. The new Timelapse reveals a sharper view of our planet. With truer colors and fewer distracting artifacts. A great example of this is San Francisco and Oakland in California:.

F)San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge reconstruction [view in Timelapse] (Image credit: Landsat / Copernicus*).

There’s much more to see, including glacial movement in Antarctica, urban growth. Forest gain and loss. And infrastructure development:.

L)WE TOOK THE BEST OF ALL THOSE PIXELS TO CREATE 33 IMAGES OF THE ENTIRE PLANET, ONE FOR EACH YEAR. I)We then encoded these new 3.95 terapixel global images into just over 25,000,000 overlapping multi-resolution video tiles.  Made interactively explorable by Carnegie Mellon CREATE Lab’s Time machine library.

Mississippi river flooded

A)Mississippi river flooded

C)Mississippi river flooded. In 1926, the Mississippi river flooded to its highest level in history, destroying towns and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. Since then, dams and thousands of kilometers of levees have been built to control the mighty Mississippi. 60 years on, another effect of the historic flood is becoming apparent. As the river has become calmer. It now also carries a lot less of the sediment that created and replenished the delta. Without that. More than 13 thousand square kilometers of the delta — an area 10 times the size of London — is slowly slipping into the Gulf of Mexico. Once again the river is threatening to displace thousands and drown the fragile delta wetlands.                                                                               mississippi river flooded

The change of the Mississippi over decades is just one of the hundreds of stories of similarly dramatic change around the globe; from the draining of the Aral Sea in the Middle East for crops. To the effects of dam construction in China, or the impacts of the multi-year drought on the Western U.S. Water has been shaping our planet since it was formed. And still plays a direct and crucial role in all of our lives.

It took three years to download 1.8 petabytes of data from the USGS/NASA Landsat satellite program and prepare that for analysis. Each pixel in 3 million satellite images, going all the way back to 1984. Was examined by a computer algorithm developed by the Joint Research Center running on the. Google Earth Engine platform. More than 10 million hours of computing time was needed for this, roughly equivalent to a modern 2-core computer running day and night for 600 years.

Mississippi river flooded. The results for the first time allow us to map. And measure changes in the water surface over time with a 30-meter accuracy. Month-by-month, over 32 years. Here are some of our findings:

  • 90 thousand square kilometers of water – the equivalent of half of the lakes in Europe – have vanished altogether. Over 200 thousand square kilometers of new, mostly man-made water bodies came into existence.
  • The continuing drying up of the Aral Sea in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan accounts for the biggest loss in the world.
  • Iran and Afghanistan lost over a half, Iraq over a third of its water area.
  • Although the area covered by water in the U.S. has overall increased a little. A combination of drought. And sustained demand for water have seen six western states. Arizona. California. Idaho. Nevada. Oregon, Utah, account for a third of the loss in U.S. water surface.

The research findings and the maps. F)published today in the journal Nature, are available for you to explore on. G)This new website. The data are also freely available in Google Earth Engine for further research, use, and download. These new maps, statistics and the stories of change they reveal provide essential information which can aid global water security. Agricultural planning, disaster preparedness, public health. Climate understanding and more. Offering the most detailed view to date of one of our planet’s most vital resources.

The map was found on a recent expedition in the Indian Ocean, as part of a deep-water dive to expand our underwater Street View collection. Captain Kidd was rumored to have buried his treasure around the world, and tales of a long-lost treasure map have lingered for generations.

However, as seen in the video, the map contains a variety of encrypted symbols and is not readily decipherable. We need your help to decipher these symbols and find Captain Kidd’s treasures; therefore we’ve decided to digitize the map and make it accessible to everyone.                       However, as seen in the video, the map contains a variety of encrypted symbols and is not readily decipherable.

C)Explore ancient. Rome really is an eternal city. With a history spanning over 2500 years and regimes from the early kingdom, through the republic, the empire, and later as the heart of the Catholic faith in the Vatican city, each has made their mark on the current urban architectural landscape of Rome. Now, with the release of thousands of new 3D buildings for the city, you can explore the blending of the ages in layered construction of Rome from within Google Earth.

https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/gwuHiu3wmUA?rel=0&controls=0&showinfo=0D)Explore ancient. Let’s start our exploration in the ruins of the ancient Roman forum, home of the original Roman republic. From here we can easily travel to some of the subsequent Imperial buildings such as the Colosseum (AKA the Flavian Amphitheater) and Trajan’s Market and Column.

Next, we’ll head Northwest, towards the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. The Pantheon is a great example of the layered reuse of buildings in Rome; originally built in the Republican period, the Pantheon was retrofitted with the front portico in the Imperial period, and then later converted into a church. The shape of Piazza Navona also displays its historic foundation as the site was originally the Stadium of Domitian in the Imperial era.

Lastly, let’s head over to the Vatican City, where we can see great examples of the Renaissance. And Baroque architecture of the city in Saint Peter’s Basilica and the colonnade by Bernini around St. Peter’s square.

Posted by Mason Thrall, Program Manager, Geo 3D

There is much more to explore in Italy’s modern capital, so have a look around this beautiful city! And don’t forget. A few years ago we also released ancient Rome in 3D which allows you to see Rome as it was in 320 AD. To see Rome in Google Earth for yourself. Use Google Maps with Earth view or turn on Google Earth’s “3D Buildings” layer and search for “Rome, Italy”. Alternatively, you can download this KML tour from the Google Earth Gallery. To take a virtual tour of the 3D landmarks for yourself. As always, feel free to use. Google Building Maker or Google SketchUp to make any improvements or additions to the city or to model your own town.

Happy touring!
