    Hello Gerald, my company is interested in having a gigapixeled photo of Dubai. Is it possible to contact you regarding that? Kindly, let me know.

    Good to see it back. Thanks! This is no doubt "the best" gigapan so far.

    Dubai has a broader view. I think Shanghai ( www.gigapan.org/gigapans/66626/ ) on the other hand has a different taste.

    multiple snapshots of the same spot!!! That is great that people find nice and interesting details of the gigapans, but in many cases snapshots show the same thing, especially in the panoramas like this. It is simply impossible to browse all the snapshots before taking one. If someone like a spotted thing, perhaps it is better to make a comment to existing snapshot rather than taking another one. Perhaps the solution of avoiding doubled or tripled snapshots would be drawing of frames of all existing snapshots in "Take a Snaphot" mode. Edited: Ironically, when I was typing this comment someone has taken a snapshot of the police car: gigapan.org/gigapans/48492/snapshot s/166477/which I (and some other people) took already: gigapan.org/gigapans/48492/snapshot s/154173/

    I appreciate the technical overview you provide on YouTube. I would like to add that link to my Art show found at www.youtube.com/user/stephenpaulwe st#p/u/8/w5igNIH3mQw Will open in

    WOW! This is unbelievably impressive. Really great that you used a gigapan as well. Print @ 300 DPI and cover a building...

    @Silverman - Hi. Got your message by email, but can't see it here. Odd. Might be because I'm on an iPad. Who knows? Anyway - to answer your question, I can't actually remember exactly how long it took to render. I think it was of the order of 24-48 hours or so, but that was without any smart blending (hence why there are so many "ghosts" in the image).

    Why do you flatly refuse to say how long it took to stitch? We know that it must have taken a long time but we would really like to know HOW long.

    @karimsaad: Try using Microsoft Research's Image Composite Editor (ICE). You can download it for free from research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/re dmond/groups/ivm/ice Will open in
a new tab or window/ Use the "New Structured Pano" feature to stitch a set of photos taken with a GigaPan device, then export using the Deep Zoom format to get a great viewing experience from local disk. Or publish to the Photosynth web site for a good viewing experience online. Please give us feedback on ICE using our forum at community.research.microsoft.com/f orums/112.aspx Will open in

    Great Work! Impressive. One question, Does anybody know how I can view panoramas locally on any computer without the need of Gigapa.org or GigaPan Stich? Thank you . Karim
