The Interactive Visual Media Group from Microsoft Research has released Image Composite Editor (ICE) – which let’s you stitch together images and output to multi-resolution tiled formats – great for creating HD View images…
What is ICE?
ICE is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. You shoot a set of overlapping photographs of a scene from a single location, and ICE creates a high-resolution panorama incorporating all your images at full resolution. Then save your stitched panorama in a wide variety of formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like HD View and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
