Google Map Image Cutter Software Update

By February 12, 2007 One Comment

We hope to release the Google Map Image Cutter software early this week as Open Source – we are just waiting for some good weather to capture an example ‘giga pixel’ image.

The software cuts up any image and places it within the Google Map interface, this allows a quick and simple way to view high resolution images online without any plugins (click and drag the example above).

We will also be writing a tutorial on capturing giga pixel images using both semi-professional DSLR cameras and your standard point and shoot rig. Its quick, easy and can create some impressive results.

The tutorial and software will be out as soon as the sun shines…
