Google Maps and Google Earth are amazing tools. We are so used to them that we tend to forget how they have changed our lives. Recently a graphic design student Matteo Archondis decided to give a tribute to Google Maps for the 12th birthday of the service and created an awesome timelapse-based tour around the world.
The timelapse is based on 3305 screenshots captured frame by frame. It shows famous landmarks from all over the world—from Rome to Tokyo but more importantly, it reminds us useful these tools are.
