GigaPan

01.28.09

I learn a lot from my students, just take today for example. When my student Donnie said to me “but have you seen the 1.5 gigapixel image of President Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address by David Bergman?” Turns out this giant image was created with the help of the program GigaPan. This “is the newest development of the Global Connection Project, which aims to help us meet our neighbors across the globe, and learn about our planet itself.” Composed of 220 images, this photograph has an image size of 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels! This is much like Photosynth (check out the dazzling demo on TED) but on a more solitary level.
