GigaPan Images

GigaPan images are great ways to learn more about geology and landscapes. When we capture a Gigapan, we use a robotic motor that automates a camera, snapping sometimes hundreds of zoomed images over a scene, such as an outcrop. These images are then seamlessly stitched together using software to produce the final picture which the user can zoom into and see great detail, even from a distance.

Below BC is taking the GigaPan system on the road to capture images for the site and allow people everywhere to enjoy some of the spectacular geology in British Columbia!
