This is a short teaser showing Sven Hedins route from his expedition through the deserts of eastern Persia in 1906. The underlying map is Hedin's own map published in his scientific publication "Eine Routenaufahme durch Ost-Persien". The same expedition was also covered in his popular work "Overland to India". The video is exported from Google Earth and this is an example of the kind of visualizations that will be included when we present the results from our expedition in Hedin's footsteps in May 2013.
