MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Some parts of the Grand Strand have changed a lot in the last 10 years, and others not so much. One way to see what has changed and how much is from satellite imagery.

Google Earth has a feature that allows users to peer back in time to see satellite images from around the world, dating back to as early as the mid-90s.

We’ve taken images from 2005 and late 2014, the latest available satellite images on Google Earth, and created interactive comparisons so you can see the development of various parts of the Grand Strand over the past decade. Check them out below.
