GigaPan Helps Explore Mars

Technology from GigaPan is being used to display images taken by the Mars rover Curiosity, a NASA mission investigating past and present environments within Gale Crater on Mars. The new 1.3-billion-pixel image was stitched together from nearly 900 individual images to showcase the details of the Mars landscape. The image highlights the site where Curiosity collected its first scoops of sand at a windblown patch called "Rocksnest," and extends to Mount Sharp on the horizon. The public can explore the image and more panoramas from Curiosity as part of a new NASA JPL Curiosity gallery on the GigaPan website. Learn more
