Atlas of Changing Environment
Brought to you by the magic of Google Earth/Maps and the UN: the United Nations Environmental Program's (UNEP) stunning world atlas of the changing environment. The interactive atlas allows you to toggle through a dizzying array of satellite images and ground photos showing the impacts of anthropogenic activities and climate change on the global environment over the last 3 decades.
The Google Maps interface is very intuitive and lets you zero in on specific cities, countries, natural monuments and geological formations (among others).
