Earth engine: time-lapse imagery of human impacts on earth

This is a very interesting project, where google earth uses satellite data to show changes to land cover in a range of places, from deforestation in the Amazon to the growth of cities like Las Vegas, glacial retreat, etc.

The data spans 1984-2012 – mainly from Landsat, so about a 30m pixel resolution if memory serves correctly.
