Panoramic stitching can be a useful technique in photomicrography. It enables capturing a larger area of a subject not covered by a single photograph, yielding more information and more detail. It allows use of higher power objectives to provide more detail than could be produced using a lower power objective.
There are a number of applications that can be used for stitching, the most common being the Photomerge function in Adobe Photoshop programs. I have found that the most effective (and powerful) application to be Microsoft Image Composite Editor, hereafter referred to as ICE. It is a free software which can be downloaded at http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/ice/
