1,474-Megapixel Photo of President Obama’s Inauguration

Posted January 24, 2009 at 3:37pm by iClarified
David Bergman used his MacBook Pro and a Gigapan Imager to create an amazing 1,474 megapixel photo of President Obama's Inauguration.

I made a panoramic image showing the nearly two million people who watched President Obama’s inaugural address. To do so, I clamped a Gigapan Imager to the railing on the north media platform about six feet from my photo position. The Gigapan is a robotic camera mount that allows me to take multiple images and stitch them together, creating a massive image file.

The final photo contains 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took David more than six and a half hours for his Macbook Pro to put together the final file. The completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes.

Click the link below to zoom and navigate through the image. You can find all sorts of things. Try to find the Secret Service Snipers or maybe some celebrity iPhone use.
