The World’s Largest Indoor Photo is 40 Gigapixels

The above screen capture was taken from a virtual tour of the world’s largest indoor photo ever taken. Taken by photographer and founder of 360cities Jeffrey Martin, the humongous 360-degree photo is actually 2,947 photos digitally stitched together and shows the 18th-century library inside the Strahov Monastery in Prague.

The photo is 40 gigapixels (which translates to 40,000 of those megapixel things of which your iPhone 4 only has 5), is 280,000 x 140,000 pixels, has a stitched-together file size of 280 GB and is cut into 85,000 tiles for the web. Head on over to the virtual tour to check out 40 gigapixels worth of photography.
