There Are Over 20 Billion Pixels in the Largest Photo of New York Ever Taken

Image Cache: The Big Apple feels even bigger through the lens of Jeffrey Martin's full-frame 50MP camera. This magnificent 360-degree panoramic photo of New York he created was assembled from multiple handheld shots. The final image measures a staggering 203,200 by 101,600 pixels in size — or just over 20 gigapixels. Browse through the cool photos, animations and diagrams in Gizmodo's Image Cache here.

If you lived in New York, there's a good chance you'd be able to see your house or apartment when zooming in on the interactive version of this photo over on 360cities. You could also just print it, but as Jeffrey points out, at a standard resolution of 300 dpi the single photo would end up being 17m wide and 8.5m tall.
