Description

I made this Gigapan image from the north press platform during President Obama's inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC on January 20, 2009. It's made up of 220 images and the final image size is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels.

There are a few known stitching errors in this image. A NEW VERSION of the photo with most of the stitching errors corrected can be seen here:

    Find the large PA speaker towards the bottom left corner, to the right of which is a guy who is glitched in an odd way. He is the only spectator I can find who is facing the wrong direction and his head is sliced and shifted. The error does not affect anything surrounding him and I cannot find any similar artifacts in the image. Can anyone explain this? methoo.com Will open in

    This is awesome. It's amazing the ability of the zoom on these cameras. One is able to see Justice Clarence Thomas asleep while the President is speaking ... totally amazing.

    This is a really cool use of the Gigapan. Me and my classmates at Rutgers University have used a Gigapan to capture large portions of our campus with some pretty impressive results(although not nearly as impressive as this one). If you're interested you can check out what we've done on our website at whereru.rutgers.edu Will open in
