HD View is a viewing software developed by Microsoft Research for displaying gigapixel images. With HD View, gigapixel photographs
can be continuously shifted and zoomed. In the process, as much data
isalways downloaded as is required for the enlarged display and the section enlargements that are likely to follow. When zoomed in, HD View projects the usual perspective, whereas when zoomed out, the projection
is curved, as it corresponds to the human way of looking at things. The transition between these projections is balanced.Windows Live.
