Abstract
Ever wished for a time machine? Capturing a gigapixel-scale image freezes a moment in time for later exploration. It’s especially useful in a case where a scientist doesn’t know at capture time which location in an environment will be salient later. We present technology to extend gigapixel-scale imagery into the time dimension, capturing many co-located images over time. Explorers of timelapse, gigapixel imagery explore in both space and time. Hop in your time machine and explore!
