Gigapixel Photos

Gigapixel images are large images made using special panoramic camera rigs.  Images are created from 100's and 1000's of individual images taken using a digital cameraand stitched together using panorama software.

The Gigapan website includes a large number of images and the tools required to build your own gigapixel images.

 This is a really interesting technology and could have uses other than just for landscape photographs. Imagine a photo of an item that you could zoom into to see detail. For example a circuit board would be visible at both the high level as well as at a very macro level to show traces and connects.
