Time-Lapse Cities

Everyone likes time-lapse photography. Here is a collection of time-lapse films where the growth and development of cities can be clearly seen. First, a building being constructed in London:

Here is a link to another building being built, over the span of eight months (the beginning part reminds me of Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel).

Here is a reconstruction of the population growth in the San Francisco Bay Area, also from Playing With Time.

Last is a page about urban sprawl, with a time-lapse depiction of urban sprawl in Baltimore.
