1.9 gigapixels

With the help of a new computer with 4GB of RAM I have been able to stitch very large images. My newest record is 1.9 Gigapixels, from 372 images shot over a 15 minutes span. The weather conditions were not good, and the exposures vary a bit over the image.

It took a bit more than 2 days to set up the control points (automatic and manually for some images), 1h30 to remap the images, and 23 hours to blend. I really should have bought a computer that could be upgraded to 8GB of RAM...

On the flickr page of the image I have additional details; if you want to view the full image you can do that on GigaPan.

Amazing! I could almost read the brand of the airconditioner two blocks away. I guess you did this with hugin?

yuv: yes this is with hugin and enblend. On the flickr page I have additional information on the production process.

Very impressive. After perusing your portfolio on flickr, I was blown away. Many of your concepts are executed flawlessly despite their inherent difficulty. Kudos.
