ST. LOUIS, MO. - It's history in the making. Or, at least, it's Google the one making it.
Earlier this week, Google released a new tool, a time-lapse, to get a visual look at the changing scope of the world over the past three decades. The time-lapse runs between 1984 and 2016 and offers a chance to look at any location available via Google Earth.
Locally, some of the most noticeable changes come with St. Charles.
And in St. Louis city, the westward expansion of those formerly in the city or the Metro East becomes physically more noticeable.
Users are able to choose their time-lapse speed depending on their own taste.
You can either search for your own location or choose from one of 33 various spots around the globe. Included in Google's default locations are Miami, Brisbane, Aus., Alberta, Can., the Dead Sea and Saudi Arabia.
Note: Mobile users can follow along on their devices, but Google suggests using a desktop browser to fully enjoy the new feature.
