Shot from 750+ feet above the city, this 360-degree panorama by BigPixel is made from 195,000 megapixels—for reference, the new Google Pixel shoots at 12.3 megapixels. Since it is one of the most detailed photos ever taken, viewers can zoom from the perch it was taken from all the way down to street-level where faces and license plates can be seen clearly. Though the photo isn’t proof of some new photographic technology, the project is an interesting new way to experience a city digitally.
