A new world record - 44.88 gigapixel photo of Dubai

by gddxb » Sun May 02, 2010 8:46 pm

4250 individual shots, stitched together by Autopano Giga.

No editing at all (because there's no way I can edit it). What you see is without any human intervention at all. No doubt there are plenty of errors in there somewhere, but I've only just uploaded it, and this is the first time I've been able to actually view the output.

A real credit to the software I think!

44,88gpixels ?????? If it's true, you have explosed the world record of kolor !!!!
Amazing !

could you tell us more about the computer you use for this record, and the time for rendering...
Look. There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up !

Gigapixels for a giga city, something like photographing the Tower of Babel !

Ben alors, les gars de kolor, on ne vous entend pas sur ce nouveau record quand même incroyable...
C'est quand même une perf incroyable et qui sert vraiment bien votre formidable soft (bon, ca ecrase un peu le dernier record qui finalement, n'a pas tenu très longtemps)...

Reste plus maintenant qu'à  faire un Paris 50 gigapixel :lol:

Tiens, au fait, avec la 2.0.6, j'ai assemblé et calculé 600 panos sur mon dernier voyage, et pas un seul plantage, ni dans l'interface, ni lors des rendus. Bravo pour la stabilité !!! (version APP2.0.6, 64bits, seven)
Look. There's a rhythmic ceremonial ritual coming up !

regarding image-quality it looks like being interpolated to twice of it´s native size.

Klaus, how is 44.88 gigapixels twice the "native" size of 76.54 gigapixels (4250 x 18 mpixels), or do we have different definitions of "native" size?
The final size looks reasonable. 76.54/44.88 = ~1.7. This shows that the stitched image is 1.7 times SMALLER than the "native" size. The 1.7 multiplication factor is accounted for by the amount of image overlap. 44.88 is about 60 % of 76.54, which would give an average frame to frame overlap of about 40%.

I certainly agree with Gerald that this panorama (gigapan, if you will) is a real credit to the stitching capabilities of AutoPano Giga.

Regards, Richard

I think the viewer in gigapan lets you zoom in a little beyond 100%, which makes the IQ appear poor when fully zoomed in. And/or plenty of dust and heat distortion could explain things.

There are a couple of other panoramas that I've uploaded that I think demonstrate very well the impact of air quality on these.

Firstly, here's a 10GP panorama (using a 5D and 100-400mm zoom at 400mm) that was taken on a day where visibility was probably pretty similar to the 45GP one:

http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/48833/

For comparison, from the same location a week later, a 19GP panorama (I used the 7D this time, same lens) that was taken on a day where visibility was much better:

http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/49105/

Obviously not a true direct comparison given I used different bodies, but regardless of that, the difference is very clear.

I've made a few comparison snap-shots of roughly the same areas in each panorama. Here are the direct links to one of those:

Regards,

Gerald.

/edit

I should probably poiint out that even on that 19GP example, the air quality wasn't that great. I'd probably rate it about a 7/10 compared to how clear things can be here during "winter" time. The visibility here will now be lousy until probably late November. Towards the end of the year I hope to be up in a crane on top of Ubora Towers taking a 360 degree panorama, hopefully with a 500mm lens on the 7D, that at a rough estimate should come out at around 100GP.
