Dubai 45 gigapixels - the new one

Hi all.

I think you're going to like this.

We've just added a whole bunch of new content to Dubai360.com to celebrate the 1st anniversary of the site going live.

Highlight is an amazing 45 gigapixel panorama shot from the pinnacle of the Burj Khalifa.

But that's not all - from this panorama, you can link to many other gigapixel images we've shot around the city, including many brand new gigapixels shot from drones. Yup. DRONE GIGAPIXELS.

From those, hundreds of new "hotspots" are then available to take you pretty much wherever you want.

We now have over 2900 separate pieces of panoramic content on the site - over 1600 new pieces of content added since we launched.

The site is so comprehensive that the special effects guys for the new Star Trek film used it to scout the city and decide on which locations to shoot before coming over here!

Explore and enjoy!

Challenge - can you find the giraffes?!

Kind regards,


Gerald.

Wow!!! This is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing, Gerald! If you don't mind, I'd like to mention your post in the UAE Maps Thread.

This is amazing! You should all zoom into the construction sites. You can see many details, especially of the City Walk. I just noticed that parts of the city walk are an inside mall with a glass roof. You have a great view on the landscaping too I could look at this 360 degree view all day

Jumeirah Village drone just gives us the idea of how much park space there is in it but almost dead empty of residents to enjoy them

Can we expect another one from the top of BK this year G?

Also think it would be quite a neat idea if there was a way to view the most recent panoramas. But fantastic, love your site!
