This is an awesome system. I would think it is related to something I saw a few years ago, sorry can not remember where or the name, but that system took pics from "different" cameras, of various makes and quality and put together a panoramic, panable picture of popular sights. The detail in it was also stunning, but the subjects were at best 200", where as in the gigapixel ballpark shot you viewing subjects from at least 400'. Amazing!!
