how to create high resolution panoramas for print from Virtual Earth. To appreciate the image above you really need to either view the full resolution version or display it in such a way that the image can be tiled.
As such we have split the image into 12 separate tiles and imported it into Second Life on a wall covering 30 x34 meters. Splitting the image up into tiles allows the resolution to be maintained and thus the sense of the scale of the city to be effectively communicated in Second Life - as pictured below (click for a larger version, recommend):
The image above, various other 'step inside' urban spheres and geographical data can be found in our corner of Second Life run by Nature.
Drop in and see us in Second Life - http://slurl.com/secondlife/Second Nature/232/169/116 or IM Smithee Bertrand and we will send you a teleport link.
