Google has introduced one more of its services. In this case it’s Art Project in which he has worked in recent months along with 17 museums among which are the largest in the world.
In this project, virtual visitors can see one of the usual applications and Google Street but applied to cultural institutions. We move around inside the selected museums, go into their rooms and watch their libraries. In a more specific level of detail, each museum has free access list for a survey is made of certain emblematic works, using photographic technology and super high resolution gigapixel. Each “object” of this type consists of about 14,000 million pixels, allowing natural details as to: the strokes, the load of paint, lights and shadows in the smallest details.
The museums also have provided high-resolution images for a selection of over 1,000 works of art, which includes works by Goya, Hans Holbein, Botticelli, Cezanne, etc.. With this vast “menu artistic” can realize the dream of having your gallery you want, because you can build your own virtual library to see and recreate with her many times as you want.
