Google Earth and History

In playing around with Google Earth tonite, I got a chance to experiment with a cool feature called historical imagery. I used it see how the coastal development in the PKAP survey area had changed over time and it was amazing to see how much the area changed in just 5 years.  It is easy to see how urban creep or expansion is threatening our survey area. If you are interested in trying this out, make sure that you have Google Earth 5.0.
