Giant Panoramic GigaPan Photo of The Presidential Inauguration

NYC photographer David Bergman shot an amazing GigaPan photo of Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration and address on the Mall in DC. Here’s the fullscreen version.

The GigaPan process takes a series of photos and stitches them together to create a giant panoramic photo than you can pan and zoom greater detail using the GigaPan viewer. For instance, here’s Bush & Cheney and Bill & Hillary.

David explains how he made the GigaPan photo using 220 images shot with a Canon PowerShot G10 that were combined to create a giant 59,783 X 24,658 pixel (1,474 megapixels) image. He is planning on selling high quality prints of this photo.
