Panorama of Vancouver from West Vancouver

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Panoramic photos of Vancouver are always interesting to view as our city’s setting and scenery never fails to impress. Today at today at Northern Voice, John Biehler revealed a gigapixel photo (a panoramic image using the GigaPan Epic instrument) that he shot yesterday from British Properties in West Vancouver.

Hover your mouse over the image to zoome and scroll, it has amazing clarity and depth. You can spot cars on the Lions Gate, a Helijet mid-air and even a BC Ferry in English Bay. John says this image is 340 megapixels.

For a slightly lower-tech view, check out a really neat series by the Vancouver Archives with historic archive panoramic photos of Vancouver.
