Warsaw 1945 / 2005
Published Monday, August 21, 2006 by CCAer | E-mail this post
My Polish is non-existent but from what I can see it looks like the City of Warsaw
has a collection of orthoimages taken in 1945 that they’ve put up on their web mapping site
. The site requires the AutoDesk MapGuide plugin
and shows the 1945 images and images from 2005. 1945, of course, marked the end of the Second World War and the effects of that war are clearly evident in the images. The changes over the 60 years are tremendous, as can be seen in these two sample images of the same area to the left.
By way of TerraObserver
(By the way, if anyone can translate the text on the site and provide me with some details on the images, let me know.)
