GigaVision - Quantifying plant life-cycles from organism to ecosystem

We are developing a set of hardware and software tools that enable researchers to record (using GigaPixel technology and digital cameras) phenology (life-cycle) information for hundreds of plants in a landscape over multiple seasons. These tools are closely integrated with innovative web-based data collection, collaborative and educational tools that help make these types of data useful for a wide range of applications from scientific research to education to public outreach.    MORE>


GigaPixel Surveillance in our future

I recently wrote an article on GigaPixel Surveillance and sent it to over 300+ members in the GigaPixel Surveillance group on LinkedIn. The article starts with: I have been asked if I really believe that GigaPixel technology will be used for security surveillance, after all we’re talking about a digital image bitmap composed of one billion pixels (picture elements), 1000 times the information captured by a 1 megapixel camera.

GigaPixel images help in disease diagnosis, grading and prognosis.

"The advent of digital whole-slide scanners in recent years has spurred a revolution in imaging technology for histopathology," according to Metin N. Gurcan, Ph.D., an associate professor of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University Medical Center. "The large multi GigaPixel images produced by these scanners (Gigapixel Camera) contain a wealth of information potentially useful for computer-assisted disease diagnosis, grading and prognosis."   MORE >


Carnegie Mellon - To Explore Scientific Use of Gigapixel Imagery - White Papers

The conference is attracting researchers from around the world who will explore the use of GigaPixel in the classroom, field and laboratory. It's the first event of its kind and Pittsburgh is savvy enough to be on the forefront of it.  The implications for science are unprecedented, giving them an opportunity to view cells close-up, even catalog entire collections of information such as insects.  MORE>


Gigapixel Cameras Create Highly Revealing Snapshots (GigaPixel 360 quoted in the "Scientific American" article)

Gigapixel digital imagery is still in its infancy but demand for it will grow quickly as the technology develops. "In 1999, megapixel cameras were a dream," says Christopher Hills, a security consultant with Securitas Security Services who also runs the site Now high-end digital cameras can take 25-megapixel images. "I absolutely believe it's going to be the next big step in the evolution of surveillance and video," he adds. "The world is always going to move toward bigger, faster, less expensive pictures and video." MORE>


New Gigapixel camera vastly improves surveillance

Revolutionary gigapixel camera design could have far-reaching implications for the military, crime prevention, and enforcement as well as traffic analysis and emergency response support; design is based on an array of light sensitive chips placed at the focal plane of a large multiple-lens system MORE>


Vancouver Gigapixel Panorama Project

Local photography services company Gigapixel has created a series of panoramic views of the city of Vancouver utilizing advanced photo-technology that allows the user to zoom in to see incredibly fine detail from miles away. Using this tool, you can zoom in on any point across the city and see enough detail to pick out street signs on the other side of town MORE>


272 Gigapixel Image Made Using 12,000 Photos from a Canon 7D

Photographer Alfred Zhao captured this 272 gigapixel image of the Shanghai skyline using the GigaPan EPIC Pro and a Canon 7D with a 400mm f/5.6 lens and 2x teleconverter attached.  He was setup and started shooting at around 8:30am and after 12,000 images were in the bag, it was just before dusk.  It took months to complete image and get the final 1.09TB file uploaded.  MORE>


Gigapixel Imaging of Soil Profiles and Landscape Contexts

Ken Tamminga, Rick Stehouwer and Patrick Drohan of Penn State University talk at the first Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science, November 11-13 2010 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. Soil profile pits are a primary in situ tool in understanding soil genesis and structure. MORE>


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>
