In celebration of 40 years of the Landstat. program spearheaded by NASA capture the Earth’s surface images via satellite, Google has put on the network a series of images showing the changes made ??on the planet during the last four decades. The video is available on Earth Engine.

“We are working together with the government’s Department of Geology and the University of Carnegie Melon to transform parts of this huge collection of video footage that can be seen by the public,” the blog post of Google Earth and Maps team signed by Eric Nguyen engineer and the researcher zovirax Randy Sargent.

The videos, which so far cover the period 1999-2011, show several of the changes promoted on our planet, such as the Amazon deforestation, urbanization of certain regions and changing seasons. Check out an example:

According to the web giant, if one could watch the video at full resolution, each frame would have 1.78 terapixels and ask for a screen of the “size of 18 football fields full of monitors side by side.”
