Recall, MapLapse was introduced to the ArcGIS Marketplace earlier in the year through a dev collaboration between GeoMarvel and GEO Jobe. Using the MapLapse application for ArcGIS Online (Free trial and Pro available) users can pan around the Globe to identify areas of land-use change visualized with imagery spanning several decades. Now there’s a very cool Story Map that shares some amazing scenes.
All images were created using MapLapse, a ArcGIS Marketplace application to discover land cover land use change. Images use are extracted from GLS datasets, which include some of the best worldwide imagery available, span multiple decades starting from 1975, and are multispectral (courtesy of the US Geological Survey). Enjoy the Story Map to view dramatic land use change in such places as Las Vegas, Nevada; Dubai; San Francisco CA; China and more.
Oh, and when you create your MapLapse scene, please share it on Twitter or Instagram and be sure to hashtag it #MapLapse – and tell us @geojobegis
