How fast time flies. Last Semptember 11, it has been 10 years since the “September 11″ bombing tragedy; possibly the worst that has happened in a strong country like USA. Ground Zero is what it is popularly called today. I don’t quite know how to describe my feelings toward Ground Zero though. Much more after seeing an interactive 360 degree photography of it.
“This panorama can be opened in two different resolutions. High resolution panorama with the best quality is about 7 Mb large and it is suitable for fast internet connections and modern computers. For slower internet and old weak computers we created the smaller low resolution panorama. Some small details have been sacrificed but the size of low resolution panorama is nomore than 2 Mb.”
As you have experienced, I also felt as if I was there. If felt the emptiness of the place, the silent war, the cry, the help, the loss. However after panning around, I realized, “Hey! We should all be grateful, right?” Ground Zero symbolizes beginning, a change of what was, a lesson learned, a reputation gained. America was able to move forward.” Although I may sound like the President of America now but clearly most of you friends also feel that way.
This interactive 360 degree aerial view of Ground Zero is a wonderful portal for the rest of the world to see and reflect the effects of terrorism for a country or for humans at least. It has helped how inhumane this act was. The people behind this might have relatively good reasons behind it but still.
Airpano was able to relay their opinion and message to the world via 360 degree photography. “Here we present two panoramas: the first one was shot in May of year 2011. The second panorama is digitally reconstructed and showcases the view of New York in year 2001. With its help we can imagine how Manhattan looked before 9/11 when the World Trade Center towers still stood there.”
