Portland Changes 1984 to 2012

Google Earth has a neat presentation showing time lapse images by year from 1984 to 2012 of any area in the world. Here are images from 1984, 1997 and 2012 for the Portland area.

To use the time lapse program just type in the name of any location in the search box. It is set for Las Vegas.

From the air.....I have tried to compare and contrast the three pics. Other than the West Hills, and the airport, I cannot tell much difference. From the ground, it is a very different situation!!

Yes, it is hard to see any big change. I could see the most difference in the northeast central region in the photos, but things certainly have changed on the ground. It's too bad the time lapse program doesn't allow one to zoom in on a neighborhood. They do allow a bit closer than these photos, but that's still a huge area.
