Identifying Infrastructure Change in the 4th And 5th Dimensions

As humans we see the world in one-dimension (a 1D point), two-dimension (a 2D line), and three-dimension (a 3D object). Many will recognise the fourth dimension (4D) as time, which - while not measured in terms of Euclidean space - can be represented by the detectable change in state of a given object between two points in time.
