This is another Gigapixel immage. We had a thread on this before with a huge picture of Viena (I think it was, could have been somewhere else)

This is diferent becasue this is a diferent way to capture the picture. It is quicker. This picture was taken in only 15 minutes, with a camera and automatic tripod shooting 216 seperate high resolution pictures, and a computer stitching them togehter 12 X 18 to produce an immage of 69,394 X 30,420 pixels.

Double click on any face in the picture. Keep double clicking. Keep going. Man this is amazing. You can identify everyone.

Not great for use in a riot situation, but for crowd surveilence this update on the technology is becoming something to keep an eye on.

I'm waiting for someone to do this but with cameras at multiple viewing angles so that it can get put into 3D.

Mate

That's pretty impressive but what's with the legs walking towards the big tree bottom right hand corner.

Cheers

Still can't upload images.

That will be where the pics were stiched together - peole moved between shots. Brilliant spot!

Glad you mentioned that. Was checking out a redhead near to columns and there is a random leg that in between her and someone else that can't be attached to anyone. Makes more sense now. Was really thinking what the hell.

Wow!
I like that they want everyone to tag themselves in the photo and pass it on. Great way to get yourself caught if you were involved in any rioting

Very Cool! If you zoom in and look at the fence toward the bottom of the photo from the right end of the fence, start to count the white banners hanging on the fence from right to left and at the forth banner you can see a half a person ( just a pair of legs) right next to some guy! move a little to the right side and you will see more half people! Must be Ghosts!!! lol

Quite brilliant and quite scary that a snapshot can hold sooo much information.


Canucks Fans: TURN ON GigaTag. Find yourselves and your friends in the Game 7 crowd, then tag and share on Facebook! Tell all your friends!

LOL.. seems you'd be the one to find waldo..

Looks like the "gigapixle" is a high-res camera taking a sequence of shots very rapidly, then pieced together, and that square must be missing.

BEFORE THE RIOT version 1 - The Vancouver Canucks Fan Zone along Georgia St. for Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final was captured at 5:46 pm on June 15, 2011. It is made up of 216 photos (12 across by 18 down) stitched together, taken over a 15-minute span, and is not supposed to represent a single moment in time. The final hi-res file is 69,394 X 30,420 pixels or 2,110 megapixels. Special thanks to Bonita Howard and CBC Real Estate.


Explains the weird glitches.

Yeah it is a stitching artifact, but like every type of photography and editing its getting better. I think this type is called ghosting or something. None the less its pretty neat and scary at the same time one can get so much detail like that on such a wide scale.

Its weird. Check out these cars in Vancouver.....

LIke it took a picture every 0.20 seconds

Weird that it only did that anomaly on the uncoming traffic lane.

Thats great, you can see birds and people in/on the office blocks right at the back. Like others i am having a concerns with the privacy issues here, identified from km away.

It is very cool though, thanks.

Don't forget it is all stitched by software. If ti reccognises the same object from fram to frame it will ignore it in all but the first frame, otherwise you can get "stitching errors".

I hardly consider a 15 minute exposure a "snapshot"…
