    I was thinking of something along the terms of if someone navigated through out the entire picture zoomed in. I would venture to guess that everyone who looks, views 10% of the image zoomed in which is still quite a bit of bandwidth itself.
    10% of it viewed in would be a couple of thousand pictures given the resolution of the picture and the resolution of the individual screens. I am sure there is software that can measure the bandwidth of a page view, the images it displays are really not that big - I can tell by how quick they load

    Not to mention the RAM in your PC, i have 1gig ram installed and it started swapping to HD when i zoomed around alot

    This is like watching CSI where they have a security camera picture and they zoom in 50x and it is still sharp.

    Oh look at that - very poor quality bl/wi camera in bad angle, lets 3d it and swirl 85 degrees and zoom in 300x and look!! It obviously had a cd player in his hand and not a gun.

    I don't think its so much stitched together as abit of time lapse has occured, it is a 2.5 gigapixel photo, i mean the 5megapixel images at full quality are large, can't imagein how large this thing acctualy is
