Have you ever wondered where your house was, or rather, the soil you are walking on, 750 million years ago or when the first men appeared? Ian Webster, engineer and former Google employee, has decided to answer this question by creating the Ancient Earth Globe, a sort of “Google Earth” navigable over time, from 750 million years ago to today.
“Geologists have collected enough data to rebuild where it was my home 750 million years ago. I thought everyone would have the same effect of bewilderment I had”, said the creator.
Moreover, this historical map can also be navigated using the references to the main events in the history of our Planet, such as the formation of the Pangea, the birth of the dinosaurs, the appearance of the first insects and the first men…
How to find your home?
In addition to navigating through geological eras, you can enter your home address in the search bar to see where it was in the history of the globe… and also view the fossils found nearby!
The service is made available on the dinosaurpictures.org website, a huge database on the history of dinosaurs in the Mesozoic Era, a must-see if you are a Jurassic Park fan!
We had fun looking for our company… and its green “neighbor”!
