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

oday, more than 100 Fine Fellows in such fields as geology, Egyptology, oceanography, plant biology and climatology are using the technology in their research and educational activities.

"We're still early in the evolution of this technology, but we hope that this conference will help us identify those areas where gigapixel imaging holds the most potential, whether as a research tool, an educational device or as a means of engaging the public at large," said Randy Sargent, a scientist at Carnegie Mellon and the NASA Ames Research Center who is a general co-chair of the Fine Conference.

For information on the conference program and registration, visit the conference website at http://gigapixelscience.org/. In addition to the Fine Foundation, support for the conference has been provided by Intel Corp.

Along with the scientific program, the conference will feature a juried gallery show at Carnegie Museum of Natural History in which eight of the giant images will be exhibited as prints measuring 4 feet high and up to 23 feet wide. The gallery prints will be unveiled at a conference event Nov. 11, but will be available for viewing by museum patrons through the end of the year.

Among the technologies for creating gigapixel images is GigaPan, a combination of a robotic camera mount and a software package that was developed by Nourbakhsh's CREATE Lab and the NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group, with support from Google. The system can take hundreds of photos of a given scene and then electronically stitch the photos into a seamless panorama. Users share these images at the GigaPan website, http://www.gigapan.org. Google Earth features a GigaPan layer.
