It will be world largest gigapixel pano as of todate.

Hum, new gigapixel one where quality is not so good in my point of view. Sky is not clear, zoom is not blocked so you can zoom in too much, a lot of blur, definitively average quality :closedeyes:
Gigapixel panoramic photographers should first think at quality of shot and weather conditions instead of getting the biggest number of pixels :001_tongue:
Yes photo is not sharp. The best gigipixel pano I have seen is from Julian Kalmar http://photoartkalmar.com/.
My favorite gigapixel image is the Paris 26 Gigapixel project: http://www.paris-26-gigapixels.com/index-en.html The image is beautiful, clear, the colors are great and the point of view is perfect so that you can see so many landmarks.
