GigaPan combined with a dedicated concave subject table makes virtually distortion-free, life-size photos of prairie plants with roots more than 10 feet long. The pictures travel to display the mass, detail, and importance of otherwise hidden soil life structure. GigaPan helps The Land Institute enlist support for development of an agriculture modeled on natureís polyculture of perennials ñ Natural Systems Agriculture.
