  1. It’s pretty astounding pictures, even if we do have to use Internet Explorer to use it.

    I remember some years ago that people did a gigapixel project for Stanage. I can’t now find it anywhere. Does anyone know if that’s still available on the web? As I remember that had higher resolution than these Yosemite pictures.
