October 30, 2006 at 8:04 am 2 comments

Probably the largest digital image (8.6 Gigapixel) in the World is located here. It is a composite photo of the “Parete Gaudenziana,” a fresco painted by Gaudenzio Ferrari, dated 1513. This fresco is in the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in the convent of Varallo Sesia, diocese of Novara and Province of Vercelli, Italy. The site uses Flash to let you explore the fresco over a zoom range of more than 180 to 1. The photo is made up of 1145 images, each 12.2 Mpixel and 16 bits per color channel.
