2.5 gigapixel photo!

this is one high res photo! The photograph shows Delft and its surroundings in the autumn of 2004. It was taken from the top of the Electrical Engineering faculty of Delft University.

How large is large? After all, my digital camera is a 6 megapixels camera. Well, this is huge! One with 2.5 billion pixels – that’s 500 times more pixels. If this photo were printed, it would measure 6.67 m by 2.67 m (300 dpi).

It was then stuck in Flash with the use of the Zoomify plugin and then stuck on the web!
