With the opening of the Olympics just two months away (August 5th), it is a good time to have a look at the host city, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Google has kicked off the sight-seeing by updating and adding to the Street View of the city. Read more about it on Google’s Lat Long Blog.

When we looked at historical imagery density we mentioned that Rio de Janeiro is one of the hotspots where Google Earth has an extraordinary quantity of historical imagery. This means that for facilities that were built specially for the Olympics, you can see the construction in process.

So, for example, we have put together an animation showing the Whitewater Stadium and BMX Centre being constructed.

You can adjust the speed of the animation by dragging the slider.

We have put together a KML file showing the various Olympic venues as listed on the official site
