Highest Definition picture of Cape Town

This is pretty amazing.

Highest Def picture of Cape Town

Quote:
Some details as to the size of this image:

* It was created by stitching 1850,fully zoomed (x 20 optical zoom), 10 MegaPixel images together.
* The time it took from the first shot (top left) and last shot (lower right) being taken, was about 3 hours.
* It’s 205 000 pixels wide.
* That equates to a printout of about 90 m x 15 m!
* The end result was a 25 GigaBytes RAW file which takes about an hour to open on my Macbook Pro.

Despite the size of the image, you can view it here because of a method called ’tiling’.
Well worth the effort to view full screen and zoom in. If you go to right you'll be able to spot the new Greenpoint soccer stadium which is being completed for the FIFA World Cup in 2010. Zooming in shows the workers busy finishing the roof.

Fabulous. Makes just a bit homesick.

Cheers
