Google Earth provided a tool that allows you to track changes in a region between 1984 and 2020.
In recent days, Google Earth has added a new tool that allows you to see the passage of time on the planet in the last 37 years. This function is called timelapse, and it allows us to observe how glaciers are melting, the growth of cities, and the disappearance of green areas as a result of population expansion.
In total, between 1984 and 2020, 24 million satellite images were linked. Google has announced that it will add more images each year.
This situation can be seen in many cities of the country where urban areas have increased especially during this period. According to the 1982 census, the country has a population of 6’073,158, of whom 32% are urban and 68% rural. In the last census (2010), 14,438,499 were already enumerated (63% in urban areas and 37% in rural areas).
You can see this situation in the pictures shared by Timelapse, where you can see the growth of major cities, as well as the melting of volcanoes in the country.
Here are some changes in cities and eco zones:
The urban development of the three cities can be seen here:
