What's a Gigapixel?
- Is it 1000 or 1024 Megapixel?
Personally, I'm not afraid labeling a crisp and clear 500 Megapixel pano as Gigapixel, but I was just wondering what's the official definition.
- I am currently working with a gigapix documentation of Alps in my area... the final results are 1.28 Gpix panoramas ready to be projected to VRPs,...but can I really say that is a true "gigapix"? Half of the panorama is useless information of the blue sky. I would like to have a cylindrical VRP but the "fashion" is spherical,.. so..., to pleasure the public I am using my server place and bandwith with the useless zenit.;) Bostjan

awfully fun to zoom way in and look around in a really high-res pano, the
way one might sit in one spot and look around with binoculars in a city. You
can never have too many pixels for that.
