News Brief: Show Extended
Carnegie Museum Extends GigaPan Gallery Show Through JulyThe Carnegie Museum of Natural History has extended through July its display of the juried gallery show from last fall's Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science. Prints of the eight stunning high-resolution photos, each up to 17 feet in length, are displayed in the R.P. Simmons Family Gallery on the museum's third floor.
The photos include those of a swirling bait ball of salema fish near the Gallapagos Islands, ancient petroglyphs in northern Saudi Arabia and one of the world's largest colonies of penguins in Antarctica. They were selected by a jury as part of the imaging conference, which explored how high-resolution imaging technologies can be used to advance and communicate science.
