Description

This hand-held panorama (0.08 gigapixel) compares to a robot GigaPan (0.23 gigapixel) taken in August, 2008: www.gigapan.org/gigapans/8215/
The Mecom Fountain is a Houston icon.

    Creating a hand-held, 360-degree panorama can be a bit challenging (make sure of the overlap, especially, in dark areas and minimize movement of people and traffic) but the results are much different that a robot-generated GigaPan. Each has its benefits as they are much different but still very visually enjoyable.
