That Spot was born as a result of curiosity, imagination, the need to systematize and the desire for sharing. It serves one simple reason – to make fictional, distant and historically remote situations feel more real through looking at where they took place.
To allow that, locations from movies and music videos, as well as paintings and photographs are compared to their current state through Google Street View. While such approach may lack certain level of authenticity of similar websites and blogs that use actual photos, it adds flexibility, more control and avoids the limiting factor of travel distance.
Hope you find it entertaining!
