Panoramas

2 March , 2011

Forgive the slightly personal post, but I thought the service zoom.it was too good to miss. It allows you to post a huge image file into a nice panoramic display. Probably useful in all sorts of situations. Complex graphs… maps of the world… huge tables where one wants to navigate freely… perhaps even the periodic table of the elements could be made into a nice panorama.

Here is the view from my childhood’s bedroom window. It always brings me back… (I wanted to embed the picture, but I couldn’t do it on WordPress…)
