What is Paris 26 Gigapixels?

Paris 26 Gigapixels is the name of the biggest assembled panoramic image of the world. It shows Paris in a very high definition. A gigapixel is 1 billion pixels! The image is a stitching of more than 2000 individual photos. Paris 26 Gigapixels was shot on September 8th, 2009 and you can view it here http://www.paris-26-gigapixels.com.

Seriously, this is well worth the visit. The amount of detail is just mind blowing and you’ll soon find your self zoomed in and panning along the many Parisian bedroom windows for a glimpse of life inside. From afar the human race is kind of charming.
