Leica D-Lux 3


In this wide panorama, we see two prospectice students, Laura-Hill and Daniela standing next to Megan, who unlike her fellow students, stayed on campus during Spring Break to be available to work with these prospective students.

From left to right is Lovett Hall (administration), Herzstein Hall (physics) and Duncan Hall (engineering).

We (the GigaPan robot, little Leica and I) have been in this area before to take a panorama of Deian, the acrobatic Bulgarian, also known as a Grad student in CS: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=9620 and a few feet behind Megan and her friends,in the Academic Quad, we have met Liz, an engineering student who became famous for wearing a red ear ring: www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=12460
If you click on "Launch Full Screen Viewer" and/or "View in Google Earth," a true unique visual experience awaits. Be careful not to look into the Sun :)

    Your gigapans work extremely well in Google Earth. I think it may be that they have a large vertical field of view. I also think that images like this should be included in Google Earth's default gigapan layer.
