The Washington Post did a GigaPan of the event, 305 images taken over a 13 minute span, stitched together into one freaking huge image.

If you were there, you might be able to find yourself.

i enjoy this expanded use of tech on the web in general. Good stuff, thanks for posting.

I like going through these images and looking for disembodied parts and other fun stuff :-)

wow amazing captures! nicely put them in a frame with no way to say that they are many pictures sticked together!

I was trying to talk my daughter into heading to DC to attend this weekend, but her response was basically: "Meh." So much for taking her to witness history...

It's amazing how many Vietnamese Facebook users have tagged their own names into the crowd in the VIP section. Also, there's a misaligned head-and-shoulders directly behind Joe Biden, which strikes me as odd; you'd think they'd have cleaned up that area better?

"Cleaned up" a photojournalistic piece?! ;-)

(snicker) I guess they pretty well lost their street cred when they started stitching, eh?

Newt Gingrich is also a split head. Maybe accurate though.

boys, boys, boys...this is a GigaPan, a stitch of 305 images shot over a 13 minute span. i've shot similarly sized (though not quite as detailed) GigaPans and the software has broken the individual images into as many as 27,000 tiles to sort through and stitch together. overall, it is absolutely amazing how well it does, imho.

as for "cleaning it up", yes, it can be done, but it is a royal PITA, especially if you are working on deadline. even on a decent machine, the workflow on a stitch of this size could normally run 2-6 HOURS, just to get it to the point of cleaning it up. it could easily take 3x the processing time just to pixel peep the image to identify the areas that need adjusting.

and really ;-) "street cred" and "photojournalistic piece"? this is just another multimedia presentation to give people access to the magnitude of the event. this was not intended to be considered in the same vein as the photos printed in the paper.

I was kidding -- I don't think my (old) computer can even view that image, much less edit it!

Even more amazing how many people sat in planes flying over DC

You would think they would clean their sensor before an epic sized image like this. Two huge dust bunnies show up over and over again in the sky.

As was I, Skip! You know me better than that!

i know :D

i just thought that was a nice place to plug in some of the technical background behind the magic...

for instance, i recently did one that if printed out it measure 44'x8' at 300dpi! the detail is simply mind-boggling. i'd love to see a side-by-side comparison with what one gets swinging around their iphone ;-)

the reality is that these GigaPans are anything but automatic (thank God).
