Up close and personal – Obama inauguration

David Bergman used a Gigapan Imager to take a 200 photos of the inauguration. The Gigapan service stiches the images together to create an extremely large image (this one is 1,474 megapixels).

I made this Gigapan image from the north press platform during President Obama’s inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC on January 20, 2009. It’s made up of 220 images and the final image size is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels.
