Vancouver’s First 360 Degree GigaPixel Photo

December 3rd, 2012 @ 1:07pm (PT) by Rebecca Bollwitt

The folks at Active Computer Services who have brought us some amazing 1-billion pixel panoramic photographs of Vancouver have again captured a milestone scene. Using the GigaPan EPIC system, CEO Ronnie Miranda has created the first 360 degree gigapixel photo of Vancouver from the top of the Shaw Tower in Coal Harbour:

You can spin this photo around, zoom, and check out this unique view of the region. Ronnie’s other panoramic giga-pixel images include view of Vancouver at dusk, a timelapse, and the first BC Lions game at BC Place last year — just to name a few.

  2. [...] One of my first training days with Gigapixel was a pretty amazing experience. Ronnie had set out to complete a 360° gigapixel photograph of the city of Vancouver from the rooftop of the very tall Shaw Tower in Coal Harbour, Vancouver . I came along, and together with a staff member of the tower, we hauled all of our gear up to the roof, and further up a set of narrow stairs/ladder to the tallest platform of the rooftop. It was a beautiful late fall afternoon and as Ronnie worked away I took notes and shot some stills from the high vantage point. You can check out the completed 360° gigapixel photograph on the Gigapixel site here … zoom in and have a look at the city’s details! Also have a look at Miss 604′s blog post on this project and the company here. [...]
