The History of the World - Genesis Edition

This interactive 3d globe from Dinosaur Pictures travels back 600 million years to the dawn of multi-cellular life on Earth. Of course that's just the beginning, What Did the World Look Like actually allows you to view how our planet has looked throughout the entire history of life on Earth.

Here's what the Earth looked like in the Jurassic era, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

I won't show you how the world looks now, as hopefully you already have some idea about that. However you can see how the Earth looks today on What Did the World Look Like. In fact you can view 3d globes from throughout Earth's history.

The site includes two menus, which allow you to change the era visualized on the interactive 3d globe. The menu at the top of the page allows you to select an era by age. The menu at the top right allows you to select a view based on the stages of life on Earth and by geologic period.
