London 360

Here’s an amaz­ing way to get the lay of the land in Lon­don. Pho­tog­ra­ph­er Jef­frey Mar­tin has stitched togeth­er 7,886 high-res images, cre­at­ing an 80 gigapix­el (or 80 bil­lion pix­el) panoram­ic pho­to­graph of Eng­land’s great cap­i­tal. The pho­to is also inter­ac­tive, which means you can play aer­i­al tourist. When you enter the site, click on “Show Land­marks” (low­er left cor­ner), make a selec­tion, and then start fly­ing around the city.

These pho­tos were tak­en from a 36 floor build­ing, using a DSLR cam­era and a 400mm lens. And it now stands as the world’s largest 360 pho­to.
