I have had way too much fun with this. Google recently announced the release of a new time lapse that would cover 32 years of satellite pictures. This means that you can now see what Twin Falls looked like starting in 1984 until now.
The beauty of this time lapse is that you aren't limited to Twin Falls. You can move the Google map to look at Jerome, Kimberly, Buhl or wherever you call home.
I was disappointed that I could not zoom in the map further during 1984 to see how many people were wearing Ghostbusters t-shirts and parachute pants.
This project was made possible by the Carnegie Mellon CREATE lab. I have no idea who these people are, but I never want to play them in Words With Friends.
