Google Street View Hyperlapse


Fun find of the day (hat tip to Dog House Diaries‘ new blog) – a series of motion time lapse videos created using a neat JavaScript library called Hyperlapse.js.

Here’s a brief description from the creators at Teehan+Lax:

Hyper-lapse photography – a technique combining time-lapse and sweeping camera movements typically focused on a point-of-interest – has been a growing trend on video sites. It’s not hard to find stunning examples on Vimeo. Creating them requires precision and many hours stitching 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 release Google Street View Hyperlapse.
