Fall from the Hill – click on the image to view this featured gigapixel panorama
Previously The Pittsburgh Gigapanorama Project focused on images from the rooftop of the U.S. Steel Tower, but we’re now gathering gigapixel panoramas from other High Points of Pittsburgh perspectives. We’ve shot from the rooftops of the Trimont and 1700 Grandview Avenue, the tallest buildings on Mount Washington. More recently, we’ve taken images from the rooftop deck of River View Ridge Condos on the Hill overlooking the Allegheny River valley. Thanks to Paul Heckbert, Rick Palmer, Jim and Julia Albright, and all else who’ve helped the project happen. – David Bear
Here’s a selection of gigapixel panoramas taken during this effort. The bold faced selections are especially noteworthy, but all the images are packed with Pittsburgh places and interesting details. Please enjoy your explorations and be sure to share these images with others!
The panoramas are best viewed in full screen. Use your mouse or screen prompts to zoom in and out and move through the image. On the Gigapan images, you can make snapshots of details you find. Click on the snapshot icon in the lower left corner of the image. You’ll find close-ups others have taken and directions to take your own. Finally, to make a comment, obtain a print, or get usage rights for any of these images, contact Gigapanorama Project.
