Timelapse is a global, zoomable video that lets you see how the earth has changed over the past 32 years. It is made from 33 cloud-free annual mosaics, one for each year from 1984 to 2016, which are made interactive by Carnegie Mellon University CREATE Lab's Time Machine library.

Google Earth Engine compiled 5 million images collected over three decades by five satellites to come up with these videos.
