History

GIGAmacro started, as many great ideas do, in the garage and spare bedroom of its founder. Gene Cooper realized that a unique combination of technologies could solve a problem that many museums, institutions, researchers, educators, and scientists have wrestled with for years – how to digitize subjects and have sufficient resolution to enable new research and discoveries. Having solved that, the question was how to share the imagery and collections with the rest of the world. The prototype to see if it was possible was produced in just a month or two. Refining it into a product capable of being used by a wide variety of disciplines took a bit longer. Over the years, the team at GIGAmacro has developed the technology into set of products, techniques, software, and knowledge that benefits people around the world.
