The Gigavision camera system is billion-pixel resolution camera system for recording ecosystem scale timelapse at a resolutions high enough to track growth of individual plants. Gigavision uses a computer-controlled 5 megapixel IP camera and 250mm equivalent lens to capture up to 300 images an hour over a 180-320° field of view. Total resolution per panorama is more than one billion pixels (one gigapixel). The  Gigavision system is solar-powered, weatherproof, and can automatically upload images to an off-site server via 802.11 wireless or cellular networks. Applied in a phenological context, this system enables researchers to make daily or hourly phenological observations at a resolution sufficient to track phenology in all the plants in an entire landscape.
