A 360 degree interactive image lets viewers explore Seattle and highlights the artists who reside in the city.

Gigapixel ArtZoom is a project by Microsoft Research that transforms Seattle into an immensely explorable cityscape featuring the city's vibrant creative scene. Created by principal research development lead Matt Uyttendaele and principal researcher Michael Cohen, the high-resolution panorama was made using over 2,000 high-res photographs taken from the rooftop of a 25-floor Belltown condo building. These images were then stitched together using Microsoft's Image Composite Editor (ICE), transforming the unique photos into a 360 degree, zoomable panorama.
