Google Earth How to go back in time

Google applications such as Earth, Street View and Maps have completely changed the way we navigate and allow us to find, look at and "visit" places around the world from the comfort of our homes.

While many use the Maps and Street View apps more often, Google Earth opens up the world with satellite and aerial imagery to provide 10D images of locations. But what if you want to see what an area looked like 20, 30 or XNUMX years ago? Google Earth lets you do that too. Let's see how you can go back in time in Google Earth!

To go back in time you'll need the desktop app, so you'll need to download Google Earth Pro. Open the Google Earth website and click on “Google Earth Pro on desktop”. The site will automatically detect your operating system and download the correct version. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the app.

Launch the app, and use the Search section at the top of the left panel to find the location you want to go back in time to. You can search for general locations, specific addresses and coordinates. Type a place and click Search to find its current Google Earth imagery.

Click the Clock icon (with a left-clockwise arrow) in the toolbar at the top. Use the time slider to go back to any point in time available. Depending on the location, you may be able to go back as far as the 1930s. You can use the zoom buttons to narrow your search to specific days and times. The rest of Google Earth features are still available, so you can find and measure distances, change the information you see, and more.

It's a fun way to see what cities looked like before major construction, historical changes to natural spaces.

Ο Google Earth website allows you to find locations and view 2D and 3D images. Unfortunately, the web application does not have the historical image feature, which is only limited to the desktop application. However, Google Earth has some preset time points of different natural and historical events that you can see.
