Teehan+Lax has taken the technique of hyper-lapse photography and applied it to Google Street View data.

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.

The company has purposely set the default settings to low (max 60 frames per animation); however, developers can grab the source code and increase frame rates and image quality themselves.
