More Gigapixel images to explore

Started getting interested in Gigapixel images and I found this Microsoft Research project called HD View: Gigapixel Panoramas. You will need to install a HD View addon which is browser specific one for Firefox and one for IE which for the small amount of trouble is worth it to explore the images that are available. So as I started to explore the Microsoft HD View site I found some incredible outdoor panoramic images by xRez Extreme Resolution of Yosemite's (Divingboard, Glacier Point and El Capitan), there are others but these caught my eye first. There is also integration with Microsoft Virtual Earth and over 50 HD View images located around the world on the Microsoft Virtual Earth map. In addition there is a RSS feed available of HD View image favorites.
