GigaPan technology has many roles in the higher-education environment. Some of these roles are intrinsic to the technology: students can see the ìbig pictureî and also view details. In other situations, the GigaPan technology lets students explore the many facets of plants in their environment. These are just starting points. In this paper we review a variety of applications involving GigaPan photography in the biological sciences. We include public and administrative examples of academic activities as we have found that GigaPan images are not limited to their use in the classroom.
