In this way, we can see where our city was located millions of years ago and the shape of the continents and oceans.

To see it we have to enter the interactive map and once there we can travel in time using the menu at the top and choose a specific date, or the upper right menu that takes us to specific moments in history (such as extinction of the dinosaurs).

In the search box at the top left we write the name of our city. If the tectonic plates already existed at the time we have chosen, the map will show us a pink circle with the location of the lands where our city is today.
