Cambodia's Timelapse 1984-2012 on Google Earth Engine

Screenshot: Cambodia's Satellite Imagery on Google Earth Engine

Since Google started working with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), NASA and TIME, it has released more than a quarter-century of images of Earth taken from space, compiled for the first time into an interactive time-lapse experience. It believes this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public.

Built from millions of satellite images and trillions of pixels, you can explore this global, zoomable time-lapse map as part of TIME's new Timelapse project. View stunning phenomena such as the sprouting of Dubai’s artificial Palm Islands, the retreat of Alaska’s Columbia Glacier, the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon and urban growth in Las Vegas from 1984 to 2012, according to a post on the official blog. That is why I make a tour about "Cambodia's Timelapse 1984-2012 Tour on Google Earth Engine". Please check it out as the following:

Back to the Google Earth Engine, do you know it?
Google Earth Engine is a platform for petabyte-scale scientific analysis and visualization of geospatial datasets, both for public benefit and for business and government users.
Earth Engine stores satellite imagery, organizes it, and makes it available for the first time for global-scale data mining. The public data archive includes historical earth imagery going back more than forty years, and new imagery is collected every day. Earth Engine also provides APIs in JavaScript and Python, as well as other tools, to enable the analysis of large datasets.

How is Earth Engine different from Google Earth?

Earth Engine and Google Earth serve different purposes. Google Earth enables you to travel and learn about the world through a virtual globe. You can view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings and much more. Earth Engine, on the other hand, is a tool for analyzing geospatial information. Although Earth Engine has a data catalog, not everything available in Google Earth is available for analysis in the Earth Engine catalog. Similarly, much of the data in Earth Engine is not currently available for visualization in Google Earth.

This video introduces Earth Engine and demonstrates how it is being used to address planetary challenges. Visit more on Google Earth Engine's website!
