CLIENT / SPACE NEEDLE   PROJECT / ZOOMABLE CITY 2014

 
 

A massive gigapixel image was captured by designing a custom mounting system that was temporarily attached to the top of the Space Needle spire. 

Using CAD drawings, our mechanical engineer constructed a heavy-duty mount to attach to our Nodal Ninja carbon pole system. The mounts were critical to withstand the heavy gear load and high wind gusts. Special equipment was used to lift and install the gear to the top of the Space Needle's spire. Once installed, the pole system was then carefully extended further, with the robotic pano-head, to achieve optimum photographic angles.
