Gigapan – the coolest panoramic HD imaging yet

http://gigapan.org

Panoramic pictures taken by a robotic machine with astounding detail.  I love this.  What I love even more is the “moment in time” (well, actually ‘moments of time’) that are captured in a single image.  The result is a Sociological snapshot.

My favorite is of the inauguration.  Not because of the inauguration itself, but because of the facial expressions of President Bush (2) and Dick Chaney:

  1. Incredible detail in the inauguration photo. I managed to locate (and recognize) my sister-in-law and brother-in-law in the crowd, just behind the camera tower. So they really were there!
