Interactive Photos from Obama’s Inauguration

Now the dust has settled from last week’s US Presidential inauguration, I thought I’d have a look around for interactive photo exhibits that recorded the event. (I’ll maintain a list here if and when I find anything else to add.)

So here’s what I found…

Time Lapse photo (Washington Post)

Satellite Image of the National Mall (Washington Post)

A half-metre resolution satellite image over Washington taken around the time of the inauguration.

You can also see this GeoEye image in Google Earth.

Gigapixel Photo of the Inauguration (David Bergman)

Read more about how this photo was taken here: How I Made a 1,474-Megapixel Photo During President Obama’s Inaugural Address.

Interactive Panorama From the Crowds (New York Times)

PhotoSynth collage (CNN)

I suppose the next thing to consider is this: what sort of mashup is possible using these different sources?!;-)

[PS If you find any more interactive photo exhibits with a similar grandeur of scale, please add a link in a comment to this post:-)]
