The sequential photographs of the Earth that Google has just published applying the 'time-lapse' technique allow us to appreciate how our planet has changed during the last three decades. Thanks to this initiative we can appreciate in a fairly clear and detailed way almost any area of ​​the planet through photographic sequences recorded from 1984 to 2016.

The 'time-lapse' tool was introduced by Google in 2013, but then only poor-quality images were available that only showed an overview. The latest version allows you to see even the streets and buildings in some areas, which has been possible thanks to the high definition images obtained by the Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2 satellites with the collaboration of NASA. Thanks to the latest update, this sequence shows in bright colors how the constructions develop in Bolivia, explains.

Everybody These videos, which can be viewed on Google's YouTube portal, are each only a few seconds long, long enough to appreciate the incredible changes in some areas. The development of cities can be examined in a very precise way, as in this sequence that shows the dynamic construction process in Mexico City:

The videos not only reflect the development of large cities, but also the deterioration that humanity causes on our planet as more buildings are built, as well as the melting of glacial layers and the dramatic reduction of green areas of vegetation. Among the images, the desiccation of a lake in California stands out:
