Gigapan is hosting an impressive gigapixel image taken by David Bergman of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration on January 20th. The image is composed of 220 separate images making a final image with a size of 59,783 X 24,658 pixels. That’s roughly 1.47 gigapixels!
Like most gigapixel images, you can zoom in rather closely to any part of the picture above and get a pretty close view of people’s faces. Give it a try and pan around the place. Maybe you’ll find someone you know!
Oh, and if you click on the smaller images at the bottom of the gigapixel picture, you can zoom in to designated bookmarks that people have selected. One of the bookmarks zooms you into a little joke that a stagehand wrote on gaff tape on one of the support bars. Kinda funny. Haha.
