Seadragon + Photosynth = Amazing.

Thanks to Jennifer Sharkey for this link to an absolutely amazing use of Flickr images to create hyperlinked collages.  The resolution they’re achieving is incredible–the amount of data packed into these images (a panoramic view of the Canadian Rockies, Bleak House by Dickens) is astounding.  The implications for the creation of virtual environments, not to mention images for instructional use, are really something.

Also relevant:  Photosynth, a Microsoft tool that’s part of the underlying chassis.
