This looks like a fun tool that might be quite useful… 🙂
Google Street View Hyperlapse | Labs | Teehan+Lax.
Hyper-lapse photography â€“ a technique combining time-lapse and sweeping camera movements typically focused on a point-of-interest â€“ has been a growing trend on video sites. Itâ€™s not hard to findÂ stunning examples on Vimeo. Creating them requiresprecision and many hours stitchingÂ together photos taken from carefully mapped locations. We aimed at making the process simpler by using Google Street View as an aid, but quickly discovered that it could be used as the source material. It worked so well, we decided to design a very usable UI around our engine and releaseÂ Google Street View Hyperlapse.
