New Scientist article

There is a wonderful New Scientist article here about the Fine Outreach for Science fellows who are using Gigapan. Our very own Richard Palmer, Ron Schott, Sarah Sharpe and Bill Wallauer have their work with Gigapan in science described. Congratulations!

Discovery Show - Daily Planet talks GigaPan

The Discovery Channel's "Daily Planet" series just released an episode on TV that you can access on-line that you should take a look at. They filmed this in celebration of Darwin's 200th birthday anniversay, and at about minute 13 it features Alex Smith, one of our Fine Foundation Gigapan fellows, talking about their Barcode of Life project at the University of Guelph. He shows how they use GigaPan to capture the environment of the DNA specimens they collect and this features live usage of the website with a giant touch screen. Enjoy!
