The story of the people that made the Gigapan image that Time Published.
here's again the link to the gigapan http://time.com/world-trade-center/

Journey to the Top of the Freedom Tower

The Amazing Story Behind TIME’s Panorama from Atop the One World Trade Center



Quote:
In March of 2013, I found myself back at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. I had been invited there by Illah Nourbakhsh and a couple of their Directors to assist in teaching a group of educators about our EPIC Pro, as well as the benefits of what high-res imaging offered to classrooms.

It was that day that I happened to meet Jonathan Woods, the Senior Photo Editor at TIME, who was there visiting Randy Sargent, one of Gigapan’s founders, about a separate project. Jonathan and I exchanged a quick hello while I was touring that lab with Illah, and before I knew it we were all heading to lunch. Seldom in life do you find yourself in the company of such brilliance. It was a little intimidating sitting at a table with such accomplished people, but it was during that time that I had the opportunity to sit with Jonathan and discuss the Gigapan technology in more depth.

After that, we both returned back to our homes and jobs, but not before we committed to discussing further collaboration. I took the opportunity to send him one of our devices and forward some of the gigapixel images I took while back at CMU.

I’d say it was at this point that he really began to consider the possibilities. Because it wasn’t more than a week later that I received an email that said “And now I have an idea! Let’s chat. This could be epic.” The next day we were on a conference call. Plans for the One World Trade Center Panorama had begun.

The spire turned out so well... I even feel bad I made a circus of myself complaining over the radome being gone.

I can't agree with that. That antenna just looks like a thin stick that accidentaly landed on top of the tower. It just doesn't fit with the giant tower. If the tower was skinnier,maybe it would have fitted better.
But now it's just ugly.

The recently installed (clean) glass looks SO good. I understand why they haven't cleaned the external elevator side yet, but why wait to clean the other 7 sides?

Agree, I think the spire tops the building off very well ... :-)

Thank you very much, I'm very happy looking those photos.
Beautiful spire, the building'll be more pretty when they light up the ring.

A part of spire is silver, are they going to pain all spire silver? That's great!
