Vancouver seen through a Gigapixel photo


Oh man. You better have nothing planned for the next hour, ’cause this photo is addicting. Gigapixel Photography Inc. composed this 1,000,000,000 pixel image and uploaded it to a web service that allows users to zoom and navigate around. I wonder if all the residents of those apartment buildings, including the building in the middle with the chick halfway up, signed a waiver allowing us freaks peeping-tom access into their lives.

This photo is so much more entertaining than the Obama inauguration pic. The panoramic style lends to a more interesting photo. At least I thinks so. Plus, don’t forget that anyone can create similar pictures with the help of a device from Gigapan and a point ‘n shoot camera. The latest model even supports medium sized DSLRs.
