Earth Engine

Here is a link to Google’s Earth Engine that allows you to view the entire Earth’s satellite imagery in time lapses that span the past 40 years. Unfortunately it is still in beta so you need special developer’s permission to choose places to view (I asked for access and should know in a week), but in the meantime there are some great videos that show the effects of sprawl and deforestation very dramatically.
