Paris 26 Gigapixels

Never been to Paris, but would like to see the city up close and personal?  Paris 26 Gigapixels is an incredible site which allows you to zoom in on buildings in the city.

It’s a panoramic view of the city created by stitching together 2,346 photos.  There are 2 ways to view it — one using Flash and the other in HD.  If you have the ability to install software, I highly recommend the HD view — it’s incredible.  Although it doesn’t have all the functionality of the Flash view, it seems much more detailed and the experience is much smoother.

BTW — they’ve also left Easter eggs for us to find — 10 of them!  I think I’ve found one!

BTW – you can view this in French or English – check the flags in the upper right corner.  And be careful of the music – it automatically starts each time you come back to the introductory page.  😉
