I can totally see this being used in real time by our future generations.

- Military scouts would scan areas and building miles away in a glance.

- Detectives/Spies would use this to snoop in buildings to obtain intelligence.

- Civilians would use this for sight seeing.

- Avalanche rescuers could analyze a big chunk of a mountain to find survivors.

- Technology mounted in satellites to invade even more the privacy of their oppressed society (see USA)

I don't want to discourage you. But I can assure this has been used secretly for at at least 25 years if not 40.

Thanks!

For a digital illustrator and photographer this is first class tech-porn.


Space and planetary imaging indeed!

Now I'm all excited to try it.


I'm sure they do this already with the additional imaging in orbital platforms and duplicate Hubble's pointed at us. They can read license plates from orbit, and that is just what they let us know. Extrapolate.

that truly is amazing, but you would think there would be at least 1 chick bathing topless in this pic.

Nasa probably has moon photo's like this

All we get are old grainy Hasselblad images!
Remember the apollo mission where they first took a high res colour camera along, & just before they got there someone (Buzz Aldrin i think) pointed it out the window directly into the sun & killed it-'accidentally'. Oops

Of course they will never show us any high res images from the moon

I'd love to see the NSA's 111 gigapixel photo collection. They probably have great shots of bin Laden playing croquet by the pool back in Saudi.

That is absolutely amazing. Big Brother's wet dream, right there.

That is so freaking awsome. My computer renders the imagery and it's just cool how one image can just show that much pixels though.

did you read how its done NOTHING hightech about it apart from a high tech tripod and hi spec computer. Pictures taken with a Canon DSLR and a telephoto lens!

You might not be able to do gigapixel but even with a decent digicam with a telephoto lens you can create something similar , I just cant stop laughing at all the big brother and nasa comments this has generated.

The Shanghai 272 gp are very big brother with their clarity, not that I'm that concerned. Zoom into the centre of that pic and you will see a Peugeot car with a 2010 or 2011, (forget which) sticker on the windscreen, its number plate, articles inside the car even as the sun reflects off the windscreen. This is very definitive and it's not in space, but it does cover a huge area.

Not quite, google earth contains far more than 111 gigapixels. This is just spam. Get me a MF digital camera and a stitching tripod, plus a beefy PC and I could make "111 Gigapixel!!" images all day long. Yawn.

Oh yeah?? The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens. It consists of 1,665 full format pictures with 21.4 mega pixel, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. The converting of 102 GB raw Data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 94 hours. The picture is the largest in the world.

Well, if you have the time, money, a cmptr mem of 48 GB, a photo robot and 16 processors, then it's a cinch!!
Not only you, but anyone can do it!!

That truly is stunning! It's hard to imagine that technology has come this far within only a few years.
