Earth Studio is an animation tool for Google Earth’s satellite and 3D imagery.
Juxtapose helps storytellers compare two pieces of similar media, including photos, and GIFs. It’s ideal for highlighting then/now stories that explain slow changes over time (growth of a city skyline, regrowth of a forest, etc.) or before/after stories that show the impact of single dramatic events (natural disasters, protests, wars, etc.).
StoryMapJS is a free tool to help you tell stories on the web that highlight the locations of a series of events. It is a new tool, yet stable in our development environment, and it has a friendly authoring tool.
Powerful, beautiful, easy data visualisation.
Earth Timelapse is a global, zoomable video that lets you see how the Earth has changed over the past 35 years.
