Panorama

Panorama

A panorama (formed from Greek πᾶν "all" + ὅραμα "sight" ) is any wide-angle view or representation of a physical space, whether in painting , drawing , photography , film , seismic images or a three-dimensional model. The word was originally coined in the 18th century [1] by the English (Irish descent) painter Robert Barker to describe his panoramic paintings of Edinburgh and London. The motion-picture term panning is derived from panorama . [ citation needed ]
