from Sensors & Systems
Google gave the world a gift with the release of the global timelapse viewer that aggregates Landsat imagery from 1984 through 2012. While this effort isn't unique, it is high-profile with its exclusive media alliance with TIME magazine, and it simultaneously illustrates the impact of humans while also showing the difficulty of aggregating our knowledge about global change.
