The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens. It consists of 1.665 full format pictures with 21.4 megapixel, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes. The converting of 102 GB raw data by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 94 hours. With a resolution of 297.500 x 87.500 pixel (26 gigapixel) the picture is the largest in the world. (stand December 2009)

The interface is also quite impressive. Wonder if they've licenced it from google? It feels very similar to google earth.

Superb - but why does it not let you zoom in to any chosen point? It seems only the example scenes at the bottom allow full zoom.

No, try pressing "help control" you can scroll free and  use full zoom + full screen view
