GigaPixel photos now being used in the sciences

GigaPixel photographs, originally developed by NASA, are now being used in various scientific disciplines.
Developed by GigaPan systems, a for-profit company, the new GigaPan system allows users to create these superhigh-resolution panoramas with ordinary digital cameras.
With camera attached, a robotic GigaPan tripod systematically photographs a scene with thousands of close-up images, which are later stitched together with proprietary software.
