Harlem Gigapixel Image


Artist Geard Maynard in collaboration with Kolor Company created an enormous file taken from the rooftop at 7th Ave & 110th St in New York City. Gerard provided the images and Kolor provided the seaming software, Autopano Pro. The resulting 13 Gigapixel image is a combination of 2,045 12 megapixel shots that took 46 hours to render. They had to set up a special hardware for the rendering, a dual xeon quad-core processor with 8 GB memory and 2 high-speed 150 GB hard drives to make it happen. Gerard also has other composites on his website he has created that he prints with a LightJet.
