An incredibly high-resolution panoramic picture of London has been created by photographer Jeffrey Martin and the London gigapixel project. It’s the highest resolution image of any city ever.
The photographs of which the panorama is a composite took three days to take – from the 36th floor of Centre Point. Six weeks were spent composing the image on a Fujitsu Celsius workstation with dual 6-core CPUs, 192GB of RAM, and a 4GB graphics card.
7,886 high-resolution individual photos make up the single panorama which adds up to some 80 billion pixels. The photo can be navigated, zoomed, etc at http://www.360cities.net/london-photo-en.html.
