How can i increase my panorama photos resilotion.
I have camera Nikon D80.
and i need software to open photo with extension RAW.

That is a Gigapixel panorama shot with a long focal length lens. Not a true panorama for tours that Tourweaver caters for.
Sure you can get more resolution using a longer focal length lens like say a 35mm instead of a fisheye lens. But you will need to shoot a lot of images and this makes the stitching job much more difficult and will take a long time to get a result. I seem to remember that the Paris 26 Gigapixel images took 3 full days to stitch with a powerful computer.

What about the technique?
Paris 26 Gigapixels was shot with very unique hardware: 2 Canon 5D Mark II (21.1 MP) each with a 300 mm f4.0 with a tele converter in order to get a 600mm /f8.0 needed to beat the record, mounted on a custom-made panoramic head.
A RAW image, Canon .CRW, .CS2 or Nikon .NEF is an unprocessed/undeveloped image that need processing to .tif, .bmp or .jpg. Tourweaver as a program expects .jpg
All processing should be done in a non lossy format like .tif (16 bit) and the very last thing you should do is render out the final developed image as an 8 bit .jpg.
RAW by itself in no good until processed into something, it is just what the camera sensor captures. Think of RAW as undeveloped film or negitive and .tif as the master HD print, .jpg as a compressed copy of the final image.
