Image matching algorithms are used in image search, classification and retrieval but are also useful to show how urban structures evolve over time. Images have the power to illustrate and evoke past events and can be used to show the evolution of structures such as buildings and other elements present in the urban landscape. The paper describes a process and a tool to provide a chronological journey through time, given a set of photographs from different time periods. The developed tool provides the ability to generate visualizations of a geographic location, given a set of related images, taken at different periods in time. It automatically processes comparisons of images and establishes relationships between them. It also offers a semi-automated method to define relationships between parts of images.
