|Subject:||Re: What's a Gigapixel?|
Elaborating my the chain of thought from last night, we could say that a panorama that matches the human visual field with 4 times the resolution of the human eye, is in fact a Gigapixel panorama.
(200 hFOV x 135 vFOV) x (200 pixels per degree)^2 = 1,080,000,000 pixels.
Of course, that relies on the fact that Wikipedia is right about the numbers....
