The following is from www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=8382:
"The tree has always fascinated me and this view I have considered since the Humanities Building was constructed and only now, do I have the equipment to take a pano of this quality."

From this vantage point, another view of the oak tree shows its incredible beauty.

The following link is from the Notre Dame School of Architecture, describing the Humanities Building:

Note: The bottom photo is accurate and is the view as seen coming from the colleges to Fondren Library.

And from Allan Greenberg, the architect:

Technical Info: Obviously, the Gigapan robot was close to the arches and to catch the roof corners of the two buildings, the camera was in an almost-vertical angle. If you look closely, you will see some artifacts and in a beta mode, I will test each stitcher software version to see if there is improvement, but as it is, I am very happy with the results.

Pitman Tower Info: www.media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot.asp?MODE=VIEW&ID=3565 Will open in a new tab or window
To the right of the tower is Fondren Library and the sliver of a building on the right side of the pano is Rayzor Hall
