Gigapan Posts 59,783 X 24,658 pixel or 1,474 megapixel Picture of Inauguration


  Gigapan has posted a picture of the inauguration which is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels in size.  This is composed of 220 pictures taken to form this amazing panorama.  When you see the picture you think, big deal, but when you realize you can zoom all the way to the sniper team on the far off building and see them fairly clearly, you quickly change your mind.  This is not the first picture of its kind, but it is a great picture and worth taking a look.


This picture has been up for a day or two and if you have not already taken a look at it, I highly urge you to do so.
