A couple of days after the Lions Seafood Festival four years ago we spent a day in St. Augustine taking several Gigapans (huge panoramas involving hundreds of individual photographs) around the lighthouse. We just finished putting the first two of them together. The first is of St. Augustine Lighthouse from the lighthouse grounds. It includes 18 rows of 12 photographs, resulting in over 5.3 billion pixels. You can get more information, including a link to the full image, at www.beehappygraphics.com/gallery/StAugLtFmGrounds.html. The other one is an image of the lighthouse taken from the end of the Lighthouse Park Fishing Pier about 0.2 miles to the east of the lighthouse. The complete Gigapan uses 12 rows of 26 photographs, resulting in almost 4 gigapixels. The cropped version shown on our website uses only 40% of that horizontally. You can learn about it at www.beehappygraphics.com/gallery/StAugLtFmDock.html.
We still have a couple of Gigapans of St. Augustine taken from the top of the lighthouse. But those may not be ready so soon. We promised somebody we’d give them a copy of our Gigapan of Cape Canaveral Light (not yet finished). Other Gigapans on Sanibel Light, Antarctica, and Horseshoe Bend (among others) are also higher on our editing to-do list. Stay tuned.
