Timelapse Shows Huge Changes in Iowa in the Last 30 Years
It's no surprise that Iowa has experienced a lot of changes since 1984. Still, seeing it transpire in this timelapse video is pretty incredible.
This very cool tool from Google allows you to take a quick look at wherever you live from 1984 through the current year. My how things have changed during that 32-year period. Take Cedar Rapids, for instance. The metro's estimated population actually dropped from 213,000 to 210,000 in the 1980's. In the last quarter-century, it's gone up by nearly 50,000. Just look at the difference in these two stills.
You can put the timelapse in motion below. Zoom out to find your specific area, then zoom back in to watch how things have changed. I think you'll be amazed. Now... what will the next 30 years bring?
