Microsoft’s Photosynth software has been around for years, but is often not known about.  It’s great for capturing panoramic views and stitching it all together as the below example shows.  It’s unique ability to also map the contents in 3D is rather impressive.  If you are looking to stitch your multiple shots together for a flat photograph you could use another piece of software by Microsoft called ICE, or even use Photoshop’s in built facility called Photo Merge which harnesses some good results and I’ve found that quite useful for creating large maps in the past.
