Viewing panoramic images using Google Maps
In the past I've spotlighted tools and sites that utilize the Google Maps API to create a front-end viewing interface to a high resolution image. XRez Extreme Resolution Photography brings us this next example replacing Google Maps tiles with some stunning stitched together photos. Their gallery of gigantic photos include such places as Yosemite, the Mohave Desert in the US and the fjords of Norway. Click on any of these photos to bring up a full screen, high resolution view of some totally awesome digital photos. To use the viewer, double left click to zoom in and double right click to zoom out.. Very nice views and a slick use of the Google Maps API!
