earth month google globe 3D - techbuzzireland

April is Earth Month and to mark the occasion Timelapse in Google Earth is now updated with new imagery from 2021 and 2022. Watch time unfold and witness nearly four decades of planetary change from 1984 to 2022 — all thanks to this 4D interactive map, made from millions of satellite photos.

Timelapse in Google Earth is a global, zoomable time-lapse video of the planet, providing evidence of earth’s dynamic changes — from irrigation systems emerging in the deserts of Egypt and meandering rivers shifting over time in the Amazon rainforest in Pucallpa, Peru to volcanic eruptions, logging and wildfires changing the landscape of California’s Lassen National Forest. The imagery also captures ways cities have adapted to combat climate change — like offshore wind farms in Middelgrunden, Denmark and a large-scale solar installation in Granada, Spain.

Climate related changes to the planet is also something people in Ireland are actively searching for on Google, as seen with several of the entries in the Top Trending climate change topics in Ireland*.
