Gigapixel Image -- Faces

I recently heard that the average person has their picture taken 100 times a day (surveillance cameras)

What is a Gigapixel Image?A Gigapixel image is a digital image bitmap composed of one billion pixels (1,000 megapixels), more than 100 times the information captured by a 10 megapixel digital camera.

This is the crowd before the riot in Vancouver. Put your cursor anywhere in the crowd and 
double-click a couple of times and then use the scroll button in the center of your mouse.

You can zero in on one single face. The clarity is unbelievable.

This is the photo taken by Port Moody photographer Ronnie Miranda that appeared in the Tri-City News Friday June 24th.

You can see - perfectly - the faces of every single individual - and there were thousands!
