The resolution is amazing. It is really defining the upper limits of large-format photography, digital scanning and image processing.

The Project’s near-term goal is to compile a coast-to-coast portrait of America; photographing her cities, parks and monuments in exquisite detail.
A longer term goal is to create for future generations a world-wide archive of vanishing cultural and archaeological sites. Graham Flint designed cameras for applications which range from cold-war espionage to the Hubble Space Telescope. And build this one from the leftovers.0
