Google Street View Videos

I was thinking about this recently. If maps are a simple way to visualise being in a location, or moving through a location through tracing a route then Street View should enable us to be one step closer to actually following a route without actually being there. I hadn’t yet found an automatic way of animating Street View (there are plently of examples of people doing it “manually” by clicking through) until I came across this discussion on Flickr of someone who had done it the manual way.

A link from that discussion led to this on a Google Maps project site which is a program for “driving” though directions entered into Google Maps. Pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

I havent had a chance to try this but looks like it might be something similar.
