Doesn’t look that amazing? Click on the photo; while the panorama is cool on its own, the 1,474-megapixel (1.5 gigapixel?) quality allows you to zoom in endlessly — right down to Bush’s sour expression, Cheney’s wheelchair, the gaggle of front-row Supreme Court justices and pretty much any other detail you want to see.
Photographer David Bergman’s “how I did it” tale is here. I think broadband is helpful for this one, but not sure if it’s mandatory.
