The interactive 360-degree panoramic view to go along with Josh Sanburn‘s Time article about One World Trade Center is spectacular. In addition to the usual scrolling and zooming, readers can also consider ordering one of two $24.99 print posters, with 10% of the proceeds going to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.

The images are the work of GigaPan, a startup in Portland, OR. Per a report by AP, a lot of effort went into delivering this multimedia wonderland:

Beginning with crude bar-napkin sketches and eventually moving to mechanical engineers working in AutoCAD and then to welders in Asheville, NC, an eight-month process of design and construction resulted in a 13-foot-long aluminum jib calibrated to adhere to the base of the beacon at the top of the tower’s 408-foot. spire. To that rotating arm was attached a Canon 5D Mark II with a 100-mm lens.
