Ha ha. Zoomed in to all the yellow and blue dots, thinking who left all that rubbish behind, only to find it was a load of tents.

That was exactly what I thought it was going to be too!

I found several people walking in the ice fall.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing.

Each pixel has 3 colors and the bit depth is probably 8 bits, so ca. 3 bytes per pixel. Less compression. Gigapans are actually a large number of smaller images the viewer (software) assembles to make viewable at various magnifications.

I knew it! David Breashears, the guy who put together this project, swears he didn't borrow my SpongeBob scarf, and it's clearly obvious (just look in the bottom, right corner....you can't miss it) that he not only borrowed it without asking, but left it there. Now it's trampled and dirty.

He just implicated himself. Unbelievable. And this comes after he returned a tent with only 20 of the original 32 stakes in the bag.

Jerk!


Thank you. bw!

On second look I need to say, "Holy crap." I had no idea that many people/tents would be there. I figured maybe twenty tents. There are hundreds. Looks horrible. Can you imagine the smell of that place?

If not for the temperatures, it would be a total disease factory.


Thank you. bw!
