Missed The Eclipse? Watch Google’s Cross-Continent Movie Instead!

Breathtaking, Via fastcodesign

Last week, I wrote about how Google’s Making and Science initiative collaborated with scientists at UC Berkeley to crowdsource images of the eclipse from thousands of volunteers across the country on August 21.

Google plans to release the images as an open dataset, but it also developed algorithms to stitch the images together into an Eclipse Megamovie–showing a continuous view of the total eclipse as it crossed over the U.S. Early Monday evening, the team at Google released the initial results of its cross-country crowdsourced science experiment as “V0.1” of its Megamovie:

For the megamovie, Google and UC Berkeley recruited around 1,300 volunteers with DSLR cameras and telephoto lenses to capture the eclipse. These photographers had to live within, or be willing to travel to, the “path of totality”—which stretched across the U.S. from Oregon to South Carolina—and were instructed to send their images of the total eclipse to Google immediately after it passed over their area. The team at Google then used their algorithms to stitch together the images according to location and time stamp. They started working on it on Monday afternoon as the first images started to come in, adding to it as more volunteers were able to upload their photos. “As more images are uploaded and processed these will be filled in and the movie will get better and better,” the video description explains on YouTube.
