What is a Gigapan?

Based on technology employed by NASA’s Mars Rover, Gigapans are gigapixel panoramas, digital images with billions of pixels.

They are huge panoramas with fascinating detail, all captured in the context of a single brilliant photo.

Phenomenally large, yet remarkably crisp and vivid, gigapans are available to be explored at Zoom in and discover the detail of over 50,000 panoramas from around the world.

Gigapan gives photographers the technology to create high-resolution panorama images more easily than ever before, and the resulting GigaPan images offer viewers a new, unique perspective on the world.
