Google Earth Engine is a site that lets you explore how places have changed since 1984 via the magic of satellite images, one for each year and for any place on Earth.

It’s a fun tool, although, as these examples of Ljubljana, Maribor, and Bled show, the physical infrastructure of some of Slovenia’s more famous places hasn’t changed as dramatically as you might expect (press the play symbol to start the animation).

In contrast, looking at Novo Mesto the change from backwater to industrial powerhouse over the last three decades is quite evident from the air.

And the same can be seen, on a smaller scale, in the town of Logatec, with much of the change driven by two industrial parks.

And if you want to see how fast things have been going in other parts of the world, then check out Shanghai, Dubai, and Las Vegas
