Welcome to the Nano Gigapan Pan

From the beginning the GigaPan project has been about reaching out, exploring, and connecting people with each other and with the wonderful shared world around us.

In that spirit Jay Longson has created the 'Nano Gigapan.' This is GigaPan modified to control a Scanning Electron Microscope.

Follow this blog to see our progress at exploring the world at the (near) nano scale!

  1. These are great photos, and the Gigapan technology is fascinating, but in what sense are these Nano? Nano is generally understood to refer to things at a nanometer scale, or on an atomic or molecular level. These photos are still reaching their limits at micro levels, aren't they? Is that why, after the headings saying nano, you qualify it by saying (near) nano scale? I suspect it's about as near to nano as our macro scale is to the photos.
