Since 2002 I have been shooting computer-stitched panoramic landscapes. These are made by taking a series of overlapping shots and using special software to join and blend them together seamlessly. You can shoot anything from high-res non-distorted wide-angle shots to full 360 degree wrap arounds, and even spherical full views.
Panoramic photography is a technique of photography using specialized equipment or software, that captures images with elongated fields of view. It is sometimes known as wide format photography.
