"7,886 individual photos were stitched together to form an 80-gigapixel panorama" of London, making it the largest photo in the world. You can zoom in and out of it at 360cities. So says 360cities:

This panorama was shot from the top of the Centre Point building in central London, in the summer of 2010. We hope that the varied sights and energy of London have been captured here in a way never done before, so that you can experience one of the world's great cities - wherever you may be right now.

I have to say, it's pretty neat for any fan of London. I got lost in it for awhile. A selection of close-ups below. All images are by Jeffrey Martin, www.360cities.net.
