Forensic scientists, social scientists, educators, attorneys and real estate agents have been provided with a remarkable tool for
analysis and marketing with the advent of gigapan imagery. The key to use of this new imaging technology is imagination.
IMAGINE how the technology can be used to deepen the understanding of moments in time. Although a gigapan image
might take 20 minutes to create if a large area is being imaged, that 20 minutes reveals a place in time like no other human
technology and preserves for future generations of educators and social scientists an aspect of reality never before captured.
