    Agreed. The whole thing from start to finish sounded like a wonderful challenge. Very well done.

    It reminds me of this photo shoot of a redwood tree that National Geographic magazine did a few years ago.

    Interesting story.

    Here are samples/more about creating big images with gigapan:

    Paris 26 Gigapixels - Interactive virtual tour of the most beautiful monuments of Paris
    GigaPan produces 45-gigapixel photo of Dubai (Wired UK)
    GigaPan Galleries of Wonders of the World including: Machu Picchu, Taj Mahal, Colosseum, Great Wall of China, and Petra

    I used to use autostitch free pano program, which helped to win a competition at work. Then I upgraded their autopano paid version, but I haven't used/checked the gigapan which might be helpful for gb images with smaller cameras. They work together... Now photoshop also does it but I haven't tried it. For free autostitch (windows version) you can check:


    There is a ipad/iphone app also.
