Google Earth Engine Timelapse

Google Earth Engine Timelapse features 37 years (1984-2020) of satellite imagery over a given area on Earth. You can search, zoom in or out and easily link or embed to changing imagery as it plays through a timelapse meter on the bottom of the screen. It plays at three speeds and the tools is great for census (city/physical growth), environmental (development, flooding, wildfires, etcs.) and agriculture stories.
