BT Tower 360 Panorama of London

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites
 
Loading...


I love panoramas! And I really love finding awesome ones to share with all of you. This one is a panorama of London taken just after the Olympic Games in 2012 from the BT Tower. 

The panorama is formed by 48,640 individual frames which were shot over three days that come together into a 320 gigapixel image stitched together by a super computer. 

When you arrive at the site, there will be a pop up window in the middle of the screen that explains how you can navigate the image and even share a view with your friends and family.  Just click on the image to make the pop up go away. 

Then it navigates like most panoramas.  You can use your mouse to move around the image, the mouse wheel to zoom in and out, or you can the tools up in the top left corner of the page. There is a navigator (the tool with N) and below it the in zoom in and out. 

I always find it fascinating that you can zoom in close enough to see the actual texture of buildings, garden balconies, or even people strolling down the street. 

To learn more about the project you can click BT in the lower left corner. There you will find the sections About the Panorama, Who and How, as well as Press/Media.

Enjoy your computer chair trip to London, I sure did!
