NASA has released a smartphone application showing images of climate change over time, according to a release. The app is called “Images Of Change” and is currently available for download on the iTunes store.
Officials from the space agency say that human activities, natural disasters and a changing climate are altering the face of the earth. The new app presents those changes by showing paired images from places around the world, allowing climatic changes to be compared.
NASA’s images of change are also available on its website. The page is very popular – making its content available through an app will help make it more accessible.
