Dr. Randy Kaplan, Computer Science, was on campus recently to check out
some technology developed for NASA. It is called GIGAPAN and it allows
photographs to be shot of a scene in sections.
"It is a kind of robot picture taker that takes pictures of parts of a scene by
automatically positioning the camera on the part of scene to be photographed,"
Dr. Kaplan explained. "So if you have a
14 Megapixel camera, you can actually take a picture consisting of 2,000,000
megapixels or more. The really cool thing is that you can explore the composite
photo to the level of detail of each
individual photo," he said. Above is a panorama of the Alumni Plaza he
photographed. To see the image at full-size, please visit its URL:
