An Interactive Street View Campus Tour

The Rochester Institute of Technology Street View Tour is a nice narrated tour of the RIT campus using Google Maps Street View images captured by the Street View trike.

The tour provides a narrated guide to ten different areas across the Rochester campus. Each stop on the tour also features videos, pictures, and social media streams about each location.

The tour was created with Popcorn.js, an HTML5 javascript library for creating time-based interactive media. Another nice Google Maps tour created with Popcorn.js is History in These Streets, a virtual recreation of the Black Panther Legacy tour that the Huey P. Newton Foundation conducts in West Oakland.

Hat-tip: Street View Funny
