One of my favorite ArcGIS Living Atlas apps - World Imagery Wayback - was just updated with a new swipe mode. This makes it really easy to use the Wayback archives and to look at change over time. Another great feature about swipe mode is that if you click share while in swipe mode, the chosen layers and extent are captured. So you can do some interesting things sharing change over time. For example:

Thanks Bern!  The Wayback imagery is one of my top 5 favorite resources of all time and I use it in most of my presentations. Thanks for this great news!

I created a video here:  https://youtu.be/R_Fv-O7PSbU  that quickly illustrates what Bern described.  Really amazing what you can do with the Wayback imagery and the swipe tool now!   Coastal and river processes, urbanizations, land cover change, volcanism, glacial advance and retreat, and much more.  Try it!
