A few weeks ago, we showed you a neat project from Google that shows the human impact in various cities thanks to various ages of imagery for specific locations around the world.
A similar project has been done showing growth in Spain by using Google Earth’s historical imagery feature and some nice design work to let you “slide” from old to new to see the difference. Miguel Alvarez has created the non-profit site NacionRotonda.com, which has a collection of sliders to show the urban sprawl that is raising “awareness of the destruction of the territory”.
Miguel has already created dozens of posts to highlight these changes, with more coming out all the time. He’s using the jQuery Before / After Plugin from CatchMyFame to create the effect, which can be downloaded for free if you’d like to use it in a project.
Be sure to check out his full site at NacionRotonda.com. Great work, Miguel!
