80 Gigapixel 360 Degree Panorama of London is Largest of Its Kind

Jeffrey Martin spent three days shooting a massive 80 gigapixel panorama of London, which is now the largest 360-degree panorama in the world. He writes,

This is an 80-gigapixel panoramic photo, made from 7886 individual images. This panorama was shot from the top of the Centre Point building in central London, in the summer of 2010. We hope that the varied sights and energy of London have been captured here in a way never done before, so that you can experience one of the world’s great cities – wherever you may be right now.

It’s pretty crazy how you can zoom into individual windows and clearly see people walking on sidewalks.

    how did this picture be labeled as 360? its more of a 180 to me. You cant be seriously telling me that the road at the center goes straight to the road on the lower left corner because the building in the middle of them is not telling the same story

    There’s potential here for the most frustrating game of “Where’s Waldo?” ever made. I would’ve definitely Photoshopped him in somewhere if I was the photographer.

    This is not the biggest. The really biggest is Sugar Loaf – 152 Gigapixels: http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/58857/

    I like these city gigapixel images, but for real details you need individual gigapixel images, like this one http://gigapixelparis.com/et/ for the Eiffel Tower. You get to see real detail.
