Google Street View Hyperlapse

Created by a small independent team within the creative agency Teehan+Lax tasked with exploring creative uses of technology.

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.

Create your own Hyperlapse or download the code on Github to have more fine tune control over your creation.
