Google trekked its cameras to the bottom of the Grand Canyon this week to capture Google Street View images of the geological phenomenon. The new maps cover 75 miles of trails from the scenic overlooks to the Colorado River. Google team members carried 40-pound backpacks carrying the 15-lens camera system and recorded over 9,500 panoramas on Android-powered devices.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, United Arab Emirates-based photographer Gerald Donovan stitched together a massive 2.5 gigapixel panorama from the top of the Burj Khalifa—the tallest building on earth. According to PetaPixel, Gerald took 70-individual photographs, 48 of them measured a mammoth 80-megapixel and were captured using a robotic panoramic tripod. The interactive image from the Burj Khalifa can be see here.
