If it has an area of 500,000 mē, it will be the 14th largest building by area. Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 is on top of that list with a floor area of 1.5 million square metres.

Rapidshare has limit of 100mb, megaupload 250mb. 2GB is extremely large for one file. You could share it with bittorrent, that is the only possible way I see sharing such large file for free.

Inside please?

This place must have full body searches looking for hidden cameras. A cell phone pic can't be that hard to accomplish.

Ta for the offers folks. I've actually gone ahead and purchased a domain and am in the process of uploading the Zoomify files now. Hopefully I should have everything uploaded by the morning.

Well, I wanted to provide a free solution. But you were faster .

Appreciate the offer - I'm currently FTP'ing around 32,000 files generated by Zoomify to my new site. Host promises unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth. I guess we'll find out in the next few days how realistic that is!

Cell phone pics are taken all the time by workers on the site. I caught one of them at it in my test panorama

I've got it "zoomified" (see http://www.zoomify.com/ for an example).

Imagine this level of detail -



- but for the entire building...
haha, that's a face in the middle.

Oh my God, that's super big.
How many mega pixel?

I do not know if DotPhotos accepts that size of picture.

In case no image web hosting provides such service,
I suggest to put that picture not in image hosting website but into document web hosting.
For example I can put 50MB file into SkyDrive that anybody can access as long as I put it in public folder in SkyDrive.



Cheers!

Caveats:

This was a test.

By all means critique it, but -

I'm aware that there are a couple of stitching problems;
No need to mention the lack of sky and the black background;
Please no comment on the crap website. I just picked a template, and then stuck this in the middle of it.


Like I said - this was a test for me to learn how to shoot panoramas, get them stitched, and find a way of presenting them on the web. I've learned a lot (and no doubt still have a lot to learn), and will be applying what I've learned to the "full" version that will be taken from a different vantage point (so less converging verticals) hopefully sometime in June.

Ok, here goes. This is what I believe is the first gigapixel photograph of the Burj Dubai on the internet:

Enjoy!

You could look at it for hours and still notice something that you hadn't seen before.
Oh, and that zoomify application works great, the perfect way to see it!
Once again great work, if this is only your first one, I can't imagine how good your second one will turn out!
