AWS GigaPan

This image of the weather station is tiled composite which allows you to zoom in and explore the station in detail. In this case, 54 images from a robotic camera were stitched together to form a 43° field of view comprised of 24,128 x 12,048 pixels. GigaPan is a development of the Global Connection Project; read more and find links to images and equipment here, and click here or "GigaPan" on the image below to open a fullsize version in another tab.

The GigaPan page for this image has a series of "snapshots" which provide detail on each of the AWS components and sensors. If we missed any, please let us know!
