The two earlier GigaPans of Emma, www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=23013, and of Jennifer, www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=23002, were extracted from this because the first attempt to stitch a 360-degree panorama of the Academic Quad failed. Because of some help from the GigaPan community, the files were restitched and this is the result.

Note: The snapshots that I have created have a link that will take you to a memorable GigaPan, which was taken this past school year... lots of wonderful memories.

The view in Google Earth is pretty exciting, but remember, I am biased :)

    Illah & Payam, Thanks... the ability to take 360s of 4Gpix and larger has opened up new doors to me. I hope to take a 6Gpix and then an 8Gpix soon. This GigaPan thing is a wonderful event for all of us on gigapan.org.

    Thanks for the constant encouragement. At this moment, I am stitching another 360, again of the Academic Quad, but this time it is blue sky and it is a smaller version, a 91x5. FWIW, the cloisters really look great in this light and as you will see, the SX110 shines :)

    Your first 360 and your largest gigapan by a long way I think? 4Gpix is impressive! Congratulations! This gigapan looks best in Google Earth, as always.
