Time and space

http://world.time.com/timelapse/ features multitemporal images of various locations to illustrate the effects of human activity on the environment. For example, using Las Vegas, Dubai and Shanghai, the drastic effects of urban sprawl are visualized to the visitor. Also, climate change, i.e., the loss of glaciers attributed to climate change, is shown using the Mendenhall glacier and the Columbia glacier as examples. The user may also try to explore the history of other locations; the website accesses the large Google Maps/Google Earth archive for that purpose.
