The result of several months of work is the biggest panoramic photograph of the world; a 613,376-pixel wide by 181,248-pixel high photograph, consisting of 9,750 images, taken at an altitude of 60 meters from the highest platform of Torre Schindler, in Isla de la Cartuja. Just as a matter of interest, if we printed this image, it would take up to 13,800 square meters, which is more than two football stadiums.
Yes you are technically correct, but the final product is still a 111 Gigapixel Photo
Also it is a new camera, one of few as of right now that can take Gigapixel Photo'sedit on 18-5-2011 by Nobama because: (no reason given)
The stitching was made using Autopano Giga 2.5 beta. 9750 images were stitched together and some of them were processed with the new Neutralhazer® plug-in included in Autopano Giga 2.5. Neutralhazer® removes the haze from landscape panoramas by analyzing each pixel of the image. The stitching was processed on a 6-core Xeon computer embarking 40Gb of RAM and an 8-Tb hard drive. Autopano Giga 2.5 loaded the 9750 images in 1.5 hours. The saving of the project file took 10 hours and the rendering last 100 hours.
