Microsoft Photosynth - latest development in photo viewing


This is absolutely barking.


Our software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and displays them in a reconstructed three-dimensional space.

With Photosynth you can:

* Walk or fly through a scene to see photos from any angle.
* Seamlessly zoom in or out of a photo whether it's megapixels or gigapixels in size.
* See where pictures were taken in relation to one another.
* Find similar photos to the one you're currently viewing.
* Send a collection - or a particular view of one - to a friend.

Its still pre-beta, so only has a few collections on there for demo purposes - but soon it will go live and you can drop your own collections on, and view them in 3D.

As well as the standard collections, there is also a NASA sponsored one HERE
which is excellent.

Warning - needs a fairly decent PC, all you lot with onboard graphics and very little RAM, don't bother
Saw them doing a demo of this (Vids floating around the internet somewhere) well impressive, it will use images on google earth amongst other things to make the 3d environment. Will see if I can find it.


LOL - check out Trafalgar square. One of the photo's is an old black and white one, that must have been took 40-odd years ago!!!

But its still been captured accurately, in exactly the right place. Unbeleivable.
