A while ago we created the mosaic of Google Earth pictured above using images tagged with the words ‘Maps, Space and Aerial’. The result was a photo mosaic of 5000 images which was aimed at getting across the point of ‘mashups’ for a forthcoming presentation. The full size image (10,000 x 6000 pixel) image is embedded below courtesy of our free Image Cutter software, simply click to zoom and drag to pan:
You can also view a larger version via Flickr.
