With Illah Nourbakhsh and Milton Fine. Aiming to explore innovative use of gigapixel imaging in the classroom, the field and the laboratory, presentations focused on the latest techniques, ideas, applications and research findings related to various aspects of gigapixel imaging for science.
Mark Bauman of National Geographic Society discussed the role of gigapixel imagery as a tool for scientific, cultural and environmental literacy.
