A while ago we had a few posts with satellites images showing the urban expansion of Phoenix (1989 – 2009), São Paulo (1957-2007) and Las Vegas (1984-2009 or 1976-2010)*. Now you may check similiar timelapse satellite videos for many (many!) other places on the planet from 1984 through 2012 (yearly pictures amounting a total of 909 terabytes of data).
Search anywhere here and say thanks to NASA, Google, Time and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
