    Aspen movie map, Google street view; the classic case of how one man’s, apparently, egregious idea- in the by gone years- has become reality now

    Andrew Lippman of MIT in 1978 came up with this Google Street View-like concept called the Aspen Movie Map.

    Michael Naimark & MIT ArchMac’s Aspen Movie Map created in 1978-80, a landmark hypermedia installation which allowed visitors to interactively explore and navigate the roads in a small town in Colorado. The core ideas of the Aspen Movie Map are used in Google’s Street View.
