The Largest Photo Ever Taken of Tokyo is Zoomable, and it is Glorious!

It took photographer Jeffrey Martin two days of shooting and four months of editing to create the interactive panorama you're about to experience. At 600,000 pixels wide, it would measure 50 meters by 100 meters if printed at photographic resolution. And yes, it is every bit as awesome as it sounds.

Go ahead. Try it. Zoom in on anything you want.

Amazing, that is absolutely

Amazing, that is absolutely astonishing. Eye in the sky...no kidding.

And just think, they probably had this technology 30 years ago.

Just imagine what exists today.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Wow, amazing image

Beautiful but it makes me dizzy.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

I would imagine

one of 16 U.S. Intelligence Community agencies have this capability already. Probably the NRO (http://nro.gov/about/index.html).

Amazing

I wonder what the magnification factor is. Must be like 1,000x!

Can anyone tell me what they see in that last photo? :) I might be going nuts. (I think it's where two different pictures got joined, but was amusing to guess... :) )

You caught me, my statement was projecting a bit... :)

Here she is:

lol. They were kind enough to "almost" block her from the picture.

There are several "blacked out" areas in that building, some more than others so I am guessing they caught a few people off guard... :)
