Event Details

Gigapan - about how they adapted Mars-lander technology to create a consumer motorized camera-mount

The GigaPan project provides multiple tools to create and stitch multiple images (or mosaics of images) to create Gigapixel and larger images which can be explored with a pan and zoom interface at

http://gigapan.org.  The experience of looking at a Gigapan image is more like exploring a new space than of looking at a conventional photo or video. You look at a picture, you watch a movie, but you

actively explore a GigaPan.

The talk will describe the history of the project, and then show examples of work which has been done with the tools both on and off our world, and looking at things from human scales to the near nanometer scale.

Rich will bring an Epic Pro and the last model of the Epic and/or Epic 100.

Speaker Bio:  Rich is a hacker, programmer, artist, writer, and photographer who has been working with computers for fun and profit since 1976.  He coauthored _Mapping Hacks_ and _Google Maps Hacks_ for

O'Reilly, and has long been fixated on the power of words and images to create compelling narratives. He now works for the GigaPan project helping to create new ways of extending the power of high resolution

pan and zoom images for scientific, educational, artistic, and storytelling.
