Landsat Timelapse

I found out about this TIMELAPSE Project today by TIME and Google. And as a map geek and a Landsat fanboi, I find this gem a very good time waster. :)

Here’s a few timelapses around my country. (Click on the image to view the largish animated GIFs).

One response to “Landsat Timelapse

  1. Maning, I flew over Semirara Island for years and saw first hand the same effects as the animation shows. I was at 10,000 feet, not in a commercial airliner, and it is a vivid memory. I responded last year to islands close to it (It is part of Antique, Panay, apparently) in the Yolanda Response, interesting how things work in that part of the world.
