In case some of you were wondering how these kind of images exist, they are made using a machine called a "Gigapan" and it takes an insane amount of photos with whatever camera you mount to it and stitches them together using software to make it viewable as you see it. These weren't taken as "one", a camera sensor along with a lens required for such resolution just doesn't exist.

I'm sure there's some darpa, et al. project to create "real time" versions of this tech from multiple vantage points in every major city with remote login for supposed VIP's.
Do I find it "cool"? No.
Sickening, offensive, degrading, invasive, imposing, immodest, immoral, disturbing, violating, nervy, and scary? Yes.
