…David Bergman’s Gigapan image of Obama is amazing?

Gigapan Obama Inauguration

To really give you an idea of what it was like to attend President Obama’s Inaugural Address with more than a million other people, David Bergman used the GigaPan EPIC to capture 220 images with his Canon G10, and then stitch them together into a final image that’s more than 1,474-Megapixels big!

The final size is 59,783 x 24,658 pixels, and it takes up almost two gigs of data, but if you go to the Gigapan site, you can click and zoom around within the image to view all of the amazing details that were captured by David. People have even gone through and annotated interesting things to see, so you can just click on what looks good and let the software fly and zoom you into place automatically.
