Abstract or Table of Contents
GigaPan combined with a dedicated concave subject table makes virtually distortion-free,
life-size photos of prairie plants with roots more than 10 feet long. The pictures travel to
display the mass, detail, and importance of otherwise hidden soil life structure. GigaPan
helps The Land Institute enlist support for development of an agriculture modeled on
nature’s polyculture of perennials – Natural Systems Agriculture.
