Dror Yaron, Outreach Coordinator for Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab, is conducting a GigaPan workshop focused on using the robotic imaging system as a tool of reportage. Yaron has partnered with students from the Point Park University Digital Photographic Editing course. The students have been capturing, stitching and uploading imagery to the GigaPan website. Once uploaded the students take virtual snapshots of elements within the picture. Those snapshots are then researched and reported upon. The stories become an embedded part of the snapshot and are read within the GigaPan web interface. The students Gigapan images and reporting can be seen here .
