Gigapan provides education outreach out of the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. Their mission is to place the Gigapan in schools and communities in ways that empower people to explore and better understand their environment, learn and communicate with peers from across the globe (or in some cases – from across the street).
For more information, contact Dror Yaron at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. Yaron is doing amazing work bringing GigaPan and gigapixel technology to schools and the science community.

Speaker: Steve Mokris & John Bowditch
By utilizing recently developed technologies such as 360-degree photography and immersive video, our team can construct accurate models of buildings and other sites that may be considered at risk for terrorist attacks, hostage situations, or other disasters. For example, if a large-scale fire breaks out on the 10th floor of the Cleveland, Ohio 5/3 Center, first responders will be able to navigate through a virtual world representation, and design an appropriate response. While this project is primarily designed for emergency response, the platform can also be used for planning, prevention, and recovery needs. The presentation will consist of a demonstration of the technology used to capture photos and videos, the process of building a virtual world from this visual data, and the current status of the overall project.

Panoramic photography with Gigapan Epic Pro digital camera systems
When the first GigaPan panoramic camera systems came out, it was fascinating to watch how a several hundred dollar system could come close to my many thousand dollar panoramas with large-format and medium-format cameras.
I waited until the third generation Gigapan Epic Pro could hold a full-sized 35mm Nikon or Canon DSLR. I did not want to try any of the earlier Gigapan models, since I already had plenty of professional panorama photography equipment. But now I have the Gigapan Epic Pro also, and am content with it. I will be even happer when we can get more diverse after-market panoramic software for the Gigapan.
