The video was recorded on a train from Amdo to Tsonag Lake, in Tibet.

Watch it on YouTube:

The raw GPS data could be found at:

And a few screenshot images of my home-made program to do it:

If anyone is interested in the program, I may spend some time to release it.

Location: Amdo, Amdo County, Nagqu Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region, PRC

This is pretty awesome! I'd say this technology has business potential. See the interactive maps at:

There they have similar functionality to yours, only its not built into the video. The technology behind it was partly developed by people where I work and supported by a collegue of mine.

I would be interested in the code! I am a QuickTime/Cocoa programmer.
