40 GigaPixel – Largest Image Indoor

40 GigaPixel – Largest Image Indoor
Jeffery Martin, a specialized photographer and founder of the project 360Cities, recently completed creating the largest image ever taken indoors. The image was taken in the 868-year-old Strahov Monastery Library in Prague and combines almost 3,000 high resolution images into one giant image with a whopping 40 GigaPixel resolution.

Creating a 280,000 x 140,000 pixels image is not a simple task, but Jeffery Martin and his team know a thing or two about these types of projects. Last year they created the largest image ever created – a one of a kind panorama view of the city of London in no less than 80 GigaPixels.

The image of the Strahov Monastery Library was created using a Canon EOS 550D with a 70-200mm lens over several days. The file containing the final image, which is made out of 2,947 different pictures, weights 280GB and if printed in real size would be 23m over 11m.
On Jeffery Martin’s 360Cities one can find many amazing projects, including the Panorama of London, but also other cities such as Paris (26 GigaPixel), Dresden (26 GigaPixel), Dubai (45 GigaPixel), and many more.
TFOT has previously covered other stories concerning  panoramas including a 360 degree panoramic system for armored vehicles, a miniature system called Spyball which can take images of it surroundings, and Scallop Imaging Surveillance Camera which has a 180 degree field of view.
