A 281 Gigapixel photo

We will be curious about the picture quality or ask for the megapixel while buying or talking about the camera. Higher the megapixel, higher will be its quality or more clarity of photos even in zooming.

How many megapixel of image have you seen ever before? Have you ever think about the gigapixel image?

Now you can see 281 gigapixel image in the Internet. This image is prepared by using the Virtual Nanoscopy Technology. Shown image is a transmission electron microscopy image of a sagittal section of a 5-day post-fertilization zebrafish embryo. This image is a virtual slide derived by stitching together 26,434 individual images. Its size is 921600 x 380928px. The quality and clarity of the image does not change even it is zoomed in and you can see even smallest parts in this image.

Journal of Cellular Biology (JCB) has uploaded this image online in this week. For the publication of these image, JCB announces a major enhancement to the JCB DataViewer to host the virtual nanoscopy data at the gigapixel scale which makes it possible to view it in zooming mode too.

Due to its huge size, it may not be possible to view it in some computers. But you can view it by clicking on following link and can be viewed each and every parts of the image by zooming in it. Click here>>
