The Google Street View Hyperlapse software is the brainchild of creative agency Teehan+Lax.
It capitalizes on the Internet phenomenon of hyper-lapse photography, which is a “technique combining time-lapse and sweeping camera movements typically focused on a point-of-interest.” However, Teehan+Laix’s Google Street View Hyperlapse uses Google Earth and Google Maps as the main source to create stunning videos.
According to Hyperallergic, the software takes images from Google Street View and “maps them along a path that the user chooses from point A to point B on a Google Earth road.” With this software, one can make a video that showcases a virtual road trip along the highways of the world. Create your own virtual journey through the world’s open roads with the Google Street View Hyperlapse by Teehan+Laix.
