Here is a gigapan I created at the St. Charles Katheryn Linneman Library on June 8, 2011



This is a special program for schools and librarians designed to help persons of all ages zoom in upon the world, cultures, objects and historic places through huge zoomable detailed images called gigapans.  The workshop includes a demonstration of a robot that takes pictures of this kind with a digital camera mounted upon its head.  The participants watch the robot create a gigapan then use their own cell phone cameras or digital cameras to create their own gigapans.   People all over the world are creating these images to share their culture, their history, their place on the planet and their favorite things.

See: www.gigapan.org for examples of these amazing images and zoom in upon reality like you have never done before.
