Google Creates Tour De France Video Maps
An anonymous reader writes "In honor of the Tour de France's start today, Google has used it's awesome Street View technology to compile amazing Tour de France route views. A great description of the technology that went into creating this can be found in this LinuxDevices article. At least, I'm assuming these are the cameras — Google acknowledged using Elphel cameras for book scanning and 'capturing street imagery in Google Maps.' And from the article, the cameras have come along way from the days when crazy cat ladies and other privacy freaks scuppered Street View in San Francisco a couple of years back."http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?f.../07/05/1711221
