World’s Largest Panorama: 460-Gigapixels Of London
Taking panoramic photography to new heights is photographer Jeffrey Martin.
He has spent the last 4 months putting together 48,000 images into a single panorama, allowing you to see things that are up to about 15 miles away, all-around from where the photograph was taken.
Almost 460-gigapixels large, this picture is about four times larger than the previous world record image of Shanghai, China, which was about 114-gigapixels.
This panorama was shot at the top of the BT Tower in London, made possible with the help of four cameras, multiple lenses and a couple of robots that helped to move the cameras around.
The stitching of the panoramic photograph was done on two workstations with 192GB and 256GB of RAM, using Kolor Autopano Giga stitching software.
Jeffrey mentioned that there's a pig somewhere out there, within a 15-mile radius: Try to find it by following this link to the gigantic photograph itself.
