No it’s not a typo, it is digital photography gone mad.
Really though this project is pretty amazing, and maybe a because we can effort, the final image is over 7Gig, it is zoomable on the site and the quality is pretty amazing, and apparently needed 5 PC's to process it.
Maybe you will need that 4Mbps connection after all vog!
There is a white renault van, number plate 99-JX-VD parked next to a silver toyota hatchbak, reg RN-PJ-57 in the car park of the long office building on the right of the image. They are the last two vehicles on the right hand side of the car park. Just visible in zero zoom.
There is also half a silver peugeot driving up the main road on the right crossing a junction. I guess it was there when they took one photo, but had driven off by the time the took the next, and it cant even be seen on zero mag.
You won't see the image in it's true form on the website. They've said that. Mostlikely the only way to see it, would be to have the actualy image full size on screen (you'd have to scroll around a lot) or printed out full size.
They've mostlikely had to compress the image for web.
Also, depending on your internet connection speeds and pc it may take a little while to filter through the image.
Well I think it is amazing. You can zoom in on a roof about half a mile away and see the make-up of each individual pebble there.
Must be 1.75 miles away there is a yellow crane -- zoom in and you can see the welding of the joints on the jib.
This particular picture may be of no interest or use to most of us but the potential for this sort of thing must be enormous.
Anyway, as I say, I think it's amazing but maybe it's an age thing. I can remember my Grandma being impressed when I had the first car that anybody we knew had seen with a fitted heater. When she was a girl there weren't any cars at all of course.
It is my birthday today so please forgive my ramblings. This time I really am going to retire even when they go "pretty please, mate". <hic>
