Internet Time-Waster: Gigapan

9 September 2010 | 0 Comments

I first visited Gigapan last year, after President Obama’s Inauguration Speech.  The website featured an extremely high resolution photo, where you can zoom in with amazing clarity on small sections of the image.  It’s a massive shot of the whole crowd, but you can zoom in on individual faces.  So cool.

I was reminded of Gigapan after reading this roundup of Amazing High Resolution Photography on the Inspiredology blog.   Eager to procrastinate from doing real work, I checked out the Gigapan site again, and was amazed to see so many different panoramic shots.  I like the one of Machu Picchu, the view from a rooftop in Bath, England,  and the Austrian ski resort.  So many things to zoom in on!
