The most intrepid mountaineers haven't seen Mt. Everest quite like this. To showcase the majestic mountain, David Breashears of GlacierWorks has created a massive, zoomable image called a "gigapan," consisting of over one billion pixels
Here's how it works:
See those little green squares? Those are hot spots. Click one, and you'll zoom into that location. The square that's second up from the bottom, toward the left, for example: That will take you to a little village of tents — Everest base camp. Click on the tent, and you can go in. You'll see a photo exhibit that was mounted by Breashears there. And then, click on one of the photos, and you'll head back out to the mountain.
