'Science never seen before' is focus of first scientific conference on gigapixel imaging
Date:10/27/2010

PITTSBURGHTwo hundred scientists, educators and students will come together at the Fine Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science Nov. 11-13 at Carnegie Mellon University to explore how science research and education can best use new technologies for creating and analyzing large digital images containing billions of pixels.

Alan Eustace, Google Inc. senior vice president for engineering, Pete Worden, director of NASA's Ames Research Center, and Mark Bauman, executive vice president of National Geographic Television, will present keynote addresses at the conference, the first to focus on scientific uses of gigapixel imaging.

"Gigapixel imaging technologies offer the unprecedented ability to capture panoramas at extremely high resolution in a single data file that can be explored interactively with a computer," said Illah Nourbakhsh, CMU associate professor of robotics and general co-chair of the conference. "But as more scientists have exercised their creativity with these technologies, we've come to appreciate that not all panoramas need to record large expanses; they also can cover microscopic terrain and sometimes even bridge time."

Vertebrate paleontologists, for instance, will report at the conference on their use of gigapixel imaging to provide detailed documentation not only of the quarries where fossils were discovered but of the fossils themselves. A biologist in Ontario will talk about how he used the GigaPan camera system, a technology developed by Carnegie Mellon and NASA, to monitor a year in the life of a woodlot within an expanding urban area. And entomologists will discuss how they used GigaPan to watch 3,200 cells in a beehive breeding frame over a period of 12 days as they searched for clues to Colony Collapse Disorder.

The conference is sponsored by the Fine Foundation of Pittsburgh, which for several years has sponsored workshops to teach scientists from a range of disciplines how to use gigapixel imaging. T
