Time travel with Google Maps

What the Time Travel with Google Maps video tutorial is all about

In the video tutorial Time travel with Google Maps I'll show you how you can to go back a few years in time and see what the places you're interested in looked like.

We will travel back in time with the help of the service Google Maps.

What exactly does time travel mean?

Of course it won't be a time travel as in SF movies. It will be just a reminder of the places that have changed over the years.

We'll see what an intersection looks like, for example, a few years ago and whether things have changed for the better or not.

How can you travel virtually back in time with Google Maps?

Google Maps has a feature that everyone knows about. Is about Street View, which is a lot of panorama pictures, which help us to see any place on the map, of course provided that place is accessible.

How the people from Google Maps kept taking pictures at…. all, for many years, now they have made us an unexpected gift.

Time travel with Street View from Google Maps

On Google Maps, on the desktop, as soon as we enter Street View mode, we will see in the upper left, a clock that has arrows around it that show the reverse direction of the clockwise direction.

Sometimes we don't have the opportunity to "go back in time."

It depends on where we are with the little Street View, to have access to the history of images from other years.

For example, if we now live on a street that did not exist in 2009, it is normal for us to have no history of the place.

The images are very nicely correlated when we change the years

The people from Google Maps did an excellent job, by the fact that when you change the years, you practically stay in the same position and the image you have is the same, being different only the background of the image, depending on the changes in the area.

It's interesting to see how some places have changed over the years

I tried this "history" from Google Maps / Street View in the city of Popesti Leordeni, where it was built at a steady pace in recent years.

The changes are shocking. Where a few years ago it was simply a dirt road and an empty field, now there are a lot of houses, shops, restaurants and even a small mall.
