Time Traveling With Google Maps

Ever wanted to travel through time? Here is something you were waiting for: a new feature in Google Maps for desktop allows you to see street views from different moments in time.

Using images from as far back as 2007, you can now use Google Maps to view the construction of epic edifices, such as New York City’s One World Trade Center, or the destructive forces of nature, such as Christchurch, New Zealand after the 2011 earthquake. You can even use it just to get an idea of seasonal weather when planning a vacation.

If nothing else, it’s another way to spend hours looking at Google Maps and dreaming of the world outside your dismal cubicle. Head over to Google Maps for more info then start planning your escape.
