Modelling buildings often demands resolutions higher than medium priced digital cameras can capture. To this end we often use a zoom lens and stitch together a batch of images to create a high resolution facade.
To date there has been no easy way to place these images online for viewing, as such we are pleased to announce the forthcoming GMap Image Cutter by Richard Milton at CASA (home of digital urban). GMap Image Cutter slices up high resolution images and creates a Google Map template in which to view them, a quick and easy solution to sharing or proofing large image files.
Pictured above is the Old Dispensary in Newham, London – use the controls to zoom in and out. Created from over 20 6Mb photographs it captures enough detail to assist the modelling process, GMap Image Cutter has processed the image into 1365 separate files.
