You can go back and see how much each of its locations have adapted during that period

It has been a good seven years since Google first launched its Maps and over this extensive time period, tons of image and location data has been gathered by the Google application. But all this data has only appeared to us in its most recent form and that is soon going to get changed. The world famous search engine has recently made an announcement in which they stated that they have decided to open up all information. This means that we can go back and see how much each of its locations have adapted during that period.

Google has also disclosed its plans to roll out the latest features across its desktop Maps service and this is going to take a start from today; a new clock icon to Street View images will be added. Once this feature has been clicked, you can move around the slider and select your choice of the thumbnails which represent different locations in a particular space. The data recollection which you will witness will be the most interesting which you would have ever come across. You would likely see skyscrapers go up, houses come down, and maybe even witness the rebuilding efforts of a community affected by a natural disaster. Till now we have no idea if this feature will ever make its way beyond the desktop.
