360 Panoramic photograph of London is the world's largest 

The highest resolution picture ever taken of a major city has been posted online. The London Gigapixel Project took six weeks to complete using high tech computer software and “a powerful Fujitsu Celsius workstation with dual 6-core CPUs, 192GB of RAM, and a 4GB graphics card.” The resulting image is made from 7,886 high-resolution individual photos, adding up to an incredible 80 billion pixels.

Gigapixel of the most famous landmark in France

The most famous landmark in France, the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) was built in the 19th century (completed 1889) by Gustave Eiffel. At the time, it was the tallest man-made structure in the world (until 1930). Once you arrive at the "Paris By Photo" page scroll to the bottom. Select fullscreen to really enjoy the Eiffel Tower Gigapixel image. You can zoom and pan to any part of the Eiffel Tower Gigapixel Image. MORE>

Gigapixel Photos of Famous Paintings

HAL9000 is a project out of Italy that takes famous paintings and shoots gigapixel photographs of them, allowing you to get up close and personal with the masterpieces through a special online viewer. For example, in their 16 gigapixel image of Leonardo’s The Last Supper, you can zoom in until you’re looking at tiny cracks in the wall. MORE>

Once In a Lifetime River Tour Starts Here! Unfortunately, Everybody’s Dead

GigaPixel Daguerreotype: This is Cincinnati on Sunday, September 24th, 1848—162 years ago. The picture, a daguerreotype taken by Charles Fontayne and William Porter (who were standing on the other side of the Ohio River), is so fantastically sharp you can-with your mouse - step right onto the streets, onto the riverboats, peek through windows, explore rooftops as if you had slipped into the 1840's with a pass key.

Navigating a 13.3 gigapixel image on a 22 megapixel display wall!

Gigapixel images are great, but navigating them on a regular sized display through a slow web browser isn't always a great experience. This video shows how we navigate a 13.3 gigapixel image of Tromsø, Norway on a 22 megapixel display wall, using a custom, camera-based multi-touch interface and a custom system for high-performance navigation and visualization of high-resolution datasets.

The world’s most tagged GigaPixel?

Orange has tried to create a world record for the getting the most tagged people in one photo, using a view from the Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury festival. The pic itself is a 1.3 gigapixel, 75,000 pixel-wide image compiled from 36 photos that took one minute to capture. They used two Hasselblad H4D-50 cameras with 50 megapixel digital backs and, camera geeks, a 150mm lens on top and 100mm lens tilt shift adapter. Both cameras were mounted vertically on a tripod and rotated at 10 degree increments to take the pictures. MORE>

Memory chips could lead the way to GigaPixel cameras

A research group from the Netherlands believes a cheaper solution could be right before our eyes – the team’s “gigavision” technique exploits the high light sensitivity of memory chips to produce inexpensive gigapixel sensors that perform very well, especially in extreme lighting conditions. MORE>

Sony and the University of Alabama build a GigaPixel Camera

Such a camera mounted on an aircraft could provide images of a large city by itself. This would even allow individual vehicles to be monitored without any danger of losing them as they move from one ground level CCTV system to another. MORE>
