Gigapixel Photography

-Most people are amazed when they encounter the next wave of digital technology, but few more so than when experiencing the visual clarity of the next enhancement of digital photography. The clarity, and zooming abilities of Gigapixel photography is truly incredible, with more and more images being released, allowing for teachers to explore locations with pupils from within the school walls.

Gigapixel photographs are created by stitching tens, or even hundreds of photographs together, each one usually taken with a 14-megapixel image. Quite a task, but the results are stunning. Here are a few we have found, and we will update more as we discover them. All links take you to external websites, of which we have no control, so please check for suitability before showing in school:
