Description

I am a real fan of the UK's Ordnance Survey (OS) 1:50000 maps. I own very many of them and am always delighted to have an excuse to get one out and pour over the wonderful details that one can find in them. I also do a bit of computer programming and in the Summer of 2009 I did some research to see if I could combine my love of maps with gigapans and this is the result. At that time I couldn't get permission to make this image public but recently OS have changed their policies and I greatfully recieved permission the other day.

For anyone visiting the UK I strongly recommend visiting leisure.ordnancesurvey.co.uk Will open in a new tab or window/. Anyone interested in writing therir own applications should check out the very splendid openspace.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/openspace Will open in a new tab or window/.

    The tiles for this come from OS as mentioned in my description. The tiles match edge-to-edge (i.e. zero overlap) so I the usual software is no good. Instead I wrote my own script for building the image, then I used the gigapan uploader. I did do one for the whole of Britain but the resulting image was too large (100GB) to upload in a reasonable time (i.e. before the universe cools).

    TGCKaK661 Very impressive, great detail and yet another use for this technology. But how did you do it...any details available? (Either here or by email). Unfortunately because, I'm guessing that you used Autopano the camera/lens details aren't recorded.

    This is an amazing acomplishment ... nothing else like it on Gigapan either. It is really a diamond for those of us that love maps. I use to have a number of Texas county maps that I used when I was a mud engineer, but they were never in this form and if I still have them, they have drilling mud smeared on them. Maps are cool, especially this one weighing in at 12.8 gigapixel.
