Please see the subcategories under the Depth Image (3D stereoscopic) heading.
Digital formats can be distinguished from their historical antecedents by what may be called the essential intertranslatability of recorded still, motion and depth imagery. Photographic still images, digitally stitched panoramas, video, 3D computer graphics, and stereoscopic 3D for example, all produce homogenous data streams that can be reconfigured in virtually unlimited combinations. Additionally photogrammetry, multiperspective visualizations, plenoptic or lightfield photography, and computational photography in general, are all indelibly linked to the idea that through computation, many photographs can be combined into one. Add to this the strategies of translation outlined above, and the result is that we have at our disposal an unprecedented array of tools that when combined with a solid foundation in art and design, can be used not only to elegantly document, but also to look at a subject in a different way and possibly learn something new as a result.
