Google Earth Timelapse Debuts on Mobile, Showcases Canadian Cities [VIDEOS]

Google Earth Timelapse, a feature that compiles images of Earth taken from space into an interactive experience and showcases the ongoing changes of our planet, is now available for smartphones and tablets through a brand new mobile web version.


Scientists, documentarians, and journalists have used Google Earth Timelapse data to explain the complex dynamics at work on Earth. Recently, a team of scientists at the University of Ottawa published an article at Nature based on the Timelapse dataset which revealed a 6,000% increase in landslides on a Canadian Arctic island since 1984.

To mark the latest update that brings mobile and tablet support, Google Earth Timelapse has showcased Canadian cities to show how they have changed over the years.
