Imagine the 10-gigapixel photo… Mcirosoft is!

    May 5, 2006

This interesting article describes how a Microsoft researcher (Michael Cohen – see bio) is trying to create a photo this summer (in Seattle) that will contain 10 billion pixels.

According to the article… With 4 billion or 10 billion pixels, a single photograph will contain several square miles of real estate in accurate detail. In the Seattle photo, users can zoom in on windows on different buildings, or zoom out to get a view of the entire skyline. A timely piece given Microsoft’s recent acquisition of Vexcel.
