Gigapixel panoramas of the world’s cities

Recognizing the new opportunity to capture, archive, and display urban environments, photographers around the world, both professional and amateur, are shooting Gigapixel panoramas of the cities they love. Often taken from a local pinnacle of perspective, these wonderfully interactive images include some of the largest digital photographs ever created.

For those who know and love these cities, these images can be a source of endless fascination and civic pride. For new arrivals seeking a sense of a city and its landscape, they are tickets to a new kind of familiarity. For anyone who just wants to know how other places look, they are literally windows on the world. Here is our ever-growing collection of cities to explore and enjoy.

You can click on the map above to access the global perspective or scroll the list below, which is organized by continent.  And as you explore these gigapixel images, remember you often have the option of taking snapshots of what you find for others to see.

If you have a gigapixel image to include, please email suggestions and links to the Gigapanorama Project
