Gigapixel images

Google have released Google Earth 4.2 and supports Gigapxl images now! Check them out at once because it's a really cool feature!

Microsoft released Beta2 of the HDView project a couple of weeks ago. It's is a similar technology to the Gigapxl support in Google Earth. Read about it on the HDView blog. The technology is also related to the Microsoft projects Seadragon and Photosynth that I've blogged about earlier. Excellent demos are the Berlin Wall East Side (HDView), read more on the website Berlin Wall East Side and the totally awesome Harlem-13-gigapixels (HDView), read more on the website Harlem-13-gigapixels.
