A Supercharged Google Maps Rocket Ride
Chemin Vert is a simulated rocket ride across five continents using Google Maps Street View images. It takes you on a bone shattering journey at close to a 1000 mph using Street View imagery from around the world.
There are three versions of Chemin Vert, one in normal resolution, a high resolution version and lastly a Vimeo video. To view either of the first two versions you need a browser that supports WebGL (such as Chrome). After either of the first two versions load you just need to sit back as Chemin Vert animates through thousands of Street View images, taking you on a virtual journey across five different continents.
