See Dubai's record-breaking largest photograph ever taken

Time Out has information on how to see Dubai's record-breaking largest photograph ever taken. Also get more details on the picture shot from the Burj Khalifa

It was only one year ago that Dubai 360 launched, showing us around the city without us even having to leave the comfort of our homes.

Now the website has showcased the biggest photograph in Dubai to celebrate their first birthday.

The updated photograph – which lives on the homepage of their website – features a new record-breaking 45 gigapixels taken from the top of the world’s tallest building.

Photographer Gerald Donovan’s shot shows an 830m tall Burj Khalifa point of view and allows people to see the city from a glorious zoomed out 360 degree perspective, to an extremely detailed zoomed in angle.

Play around with the image and be treated to a stunning look at the shores of the Arabian Gulf, Palm islands, and sail-shaped Burj Al Arab.

To demonstrate just how advanced the fresh photograph is, check out the close-up clippings we’ve taken of the nearby Dubai Fountain mechanics, as well as a random patch of greenery not far off into the distance.

Dubai 360 gives residents, tourists and armchair adventurers a panoramic view of the city, plus interactive time-lapse and video content. Users can click on the hotspot icons to reveal information, behaving like a tour guide.

It launched with 1,300 locations on the site back in January 2015, with Donovan having worked on the project for more than 18 months, setting up the technology and photo shoots.

In August last year they launched an after-dark version, showcasing the skyline with gorgeous twinkling lights.

Constantly advancing throughout the last year, some months before they introduced 8K resolution to their videos.
