Shot by photographer Jeffrey Martin over a period of three days from the top of the Centre Point building at the crossroads of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road, the image has a total resolution of 80 gigapixels, or 80 billion pixels. This new London gigapixel image, if printed at normal photographic resolution, would be 35 meters long and 17 meters tall (115 feet x 56 feet).

Previous attempts at world record gigapixels include a 26-gigapixel image of Paris, a 70-gigapixel image of Budapest, a 26-gigapixel image of Dresden, and Martin's previous record holder from 2009, an 18-gigapixel spherical image of Prague.
