The USGS has a rich historical photographic library containing photography from the late 1800s during the exploration of the West. A subset of this photography was the capturing of stereograph images (two images side by side). The USGS has implemented a method based off of a NYPL open source project (Stereogranimator) to bring together stereograph images into 3D-like animated GIFs.
