The zoom detail is quite something. Not quite enough to see a face or license plate, but impressive.

Project by numbers:
• 320 – the number of gigapixels in the photo
• 48,640 – the number of individual images shot
• 3 – the number of days it took to shoot all the individual photos
• 3 – the number of months over which the computer processed the final result
• 60,000 – times bigger than an iPhone 4 photo
• 98 – the number of meters long if printed in normal photographic resolution
• 24 – the number of meters high if printed in normal photographic resolution
• 29th – The floor at the BT Tower where the photos were taken
• 20 – number of miles distant to the viewable horizon

If you look around you can find a few. The whole thing is very impressive.

Makes me homesick. Good beer and bad weather.

You can see them but not definitively say who anyone is and the pates depends on the characters.

Yes and home to bars...oops pubs that close far too early.

Might depend on distance from camera...I didn't find any that sharp, or a clearly recognizable face.

Huh? There's very clear and readable license plates all over the place. There's an extra level of zoom past the post-processed look which appears to be the original out-of-camera shots.

Found some dude looking right at the camera. Yeah, they're not advertising... lol



Also randomly found one of the three Buzby's. Apparently you UK'ers can enter a contest if you find one of them.



Both of these were found within like 50ft of each other.

Deathk congratulations on finding buzby. I think there is a prize for that or some kind of reward.

Now it says terms and conditions apply. Maybe you have to run your own 3000 mile Ethernet cable from the BT tower in London to your Ohio home to get the 1 year free internet.

DeathK Did you click on buzby?

I am sure this post wasted a good few hours for a few people, including me.

Maybe in our lifetime the entire world will be photographed or scanned at that kind of resolution. Then nobody will get any work done....

Anyone found any half cars? Maybe in the UK the dealer does not send you the front end until you have made the final payment.
