Is there an archive of the Google maps?

I have noticed that they've updated my city several times over the years that it's been available. I'd be interested in a time-lapse style gif of my house, my neighbourhood, my city, etc...

The best app would include ability to see a region "age" on a delay, but selecting different years would be ok as well.


You can do this in the new version of Maps. (See the official announcement.)

  1. Go to Street View;
  2. Click on the clock-like icon in the upper-left corner, just below the address;
  3. Navigate to a previous date.

P.S.: Note that the number of previous views varies from place to place, in some cases just the current one being available.

You can see old imagery in Google Earth. Just use the show historical imagery button.

  • Ok, but that's not work for google maps. The archive of old street views are not on-line. Right? – user57781 Jan 25 '14 at 18:59
