Nasa’s Earth Observatory today posted this image showing the expansion of the Athabasca Oil Sands development from 1984 to present. Note, the scale on these images are 1 cm:4 km, keeping that in mind you can gauge how huge the operations really are.
The page also provides a full page of information, and a video slideshow of every year since ’84.
