Mosaic of WebCam Stills Arranged Geographically

I’ve been reading the information aesthetics blog regularly as I’m a HUGE fan of data visualization. Today, they linked to the netlag world webcam map. Holy cow – this is a video that you must see.

Says information aesthetics:

An impressive reality video of 1609 different webcams positioned around the world. specially developed software called ‘picksucker’ saved an image of each camera every ten minutes (from 29-01-2004 until 30-01-2004 18:40 GTM), which are placed on a geographical world map & become animated according to time. created by pleix, a community of digital artists (graphic designers, 3d artists, musicians…). Although based on completely different input data, the end result is looks similar to google search activity map.
