Gigapans are gigapixel panoramas, digital images with billions of pixels. They are huge panoramas with fascinating detail, all captured in the context of a single brilliant photo. They are phenomenally large, yet remarkably crisp and vivid.
GigaPan offers the first solution for shooting, viewing and exploring high-resolution panoramic images in a single system: Robotic camera mounts capture photos using a digital camera. These mounts empower the camera to take hundreds of photos, which are combined to create one highly detailed image with amazing depth and clarity.
GigaPan Stitch Software automatically combines the hundreds of images taken into a single image; and GigaPan.com enables the unique mega-high resolution viewing experience.
Imagine a 10 foot or larger photo with the details of an 8 x 10 inch print!.
The GigaPan is based on the same technology employed by the Mars Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, to capture the incredible images of the red planet.
