This resource offers a guide to create hyperlapse streetview images using GPX tracks. To get started, you need to install or build ffmpeg with h264 encoding, obtain a Google Maps API key, and activate the Streetview static API. The article provides cost estimates, highlighting that Google offers $200 of free credit monthly, and the API costs $0.007 per frame. It suggests using the --dry-run option to avoid hitting API quotas. The usage is demonstrated with a command example, and GPX files for experimentation are included in the repository. Additionally, the service is available at streetwarp.com for free.
**Streetwarp Web** is the frontend for **streetwarp-cli**, a GPX route hyperlapse tool. It connects to Strava, RideWithGPS, or Google Maps, or accepts GPX file uploads. The tool offers various output options for speed and quality trade-offs and provides animated route playback using Mapbox. Recent updates include making videos public, integrating with GPX Replay for interactive map displays, displaying elevation profiles, and renaming the "quality" button to "smooth."
