Paris 26 Gigapixels

We encountered this site just today whilst we were shortlisting our site of the day and decided that we should share it with you immediately.  Paris 26 Gigapixels is a world-record breaking high-resolution panoramic view of the French capital.  This has been achieved through the stitching of 2,346 single photos!  Users can swivel the view and zoom in on various monuments of the French capital.  Enjoy yourselves also in zooming on pedestrians and vehicles which were caught in their daily routine :>

A detailed explanation of how this project was achieved can be viewed on the official blog here:

UPDATE: Apparently, sometimes there might be some problems with the server hosting Paris 26 Gigapixels so you might be directed to an "Object not found" warning. Keep checking because it happened to me as well and after a few minutes I could access Paris 26 Gigapixels again.
