On the Paris 26 Gigapixels website, everyone can visit Paris and see all of the famous monuments of the French capital: the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, Beaubourg, Notre Dame de Paris, and many more. And that's to the incredible high-resolution of the image, you can zoom in and marvel at the smallest details.
Step 1: Setting up the equipment
Making this incredible image possible were: Arnaud Frich, one of the most famous panoramic photographers in France; Martin Loyer who travelled throughout the city taking photos that the main camera could not see; and Kolor, a young innovative French company that has become the reference in the image-stitching solutions.
The video above shows what is possible on the Paris 26 Gigapixels website, but it's much more fun to try it our for yourself.
