A Tiny Planet Journey Around the World Using Google Street View

Chemin Vert is a project created by Italian artist Giacomo Miceli using photographs from Google Street View. It’s a journey through five continents over four seasons at a simulated 930 mph. The video above was created by mapping the Street View images as stereographic projections (i.e. “tiny planets”), but there’s also an interactive, immersive version of the project here.

    I applaud the creative thinking here, but it’s a bit too abstract¬†
    and hard to watch

    Tiny bit too fast, but it is one of those ‘Wow, how did nobody think of this before’ situations.¬†

    Makes me kinda happy to see this much trees, prairies, grasslands and nature overall in the current modern affluent industrial society we live in…
