World’s largest interior photo

A 40 gigapixel photo of is the largest interior photo in the world, claims

Photographer Jeffrey Martin says he took five days to shoot 2947 high-resolution individual photos in the Philosophical Library at Strahov Monastery. The combined pano “reveals the highest- resolution view of any interior space that has ever been captured. In the image, thousands of priceless, ancient books are visible, in detail down to the worn leather on the spines; the fresco on the ceiling of the library is captured down to the brush strokes and cracks in the plaster,” he says. “In short, this photo captures the details of room in a way that has never been done before.”

The 40 gigapixel image, if printed at normal photographic resolution, would be 23 meters long and 12 meters tall.

Martin is founder of His previous attempts at world record gigapixels include Martin’s 80-gigapixel image of London, a 26-gigapixel image of Paris, a 70-gigapixel image of Budapest, a 26-gigapixel image of Dresden, and Martin’s previous record holder from 2009, an 18-gigapixel spherical image of Prague.
