Do you have an idea for an awesome feature we should add… or hate the way we’re currently doing something? Share your ideas and suggestions here.
Given several photos, any way for photosynth API to output estimated camera coordinates so we can design some of our own viewers?
I'd be interested in camera locations, but for another reason:
It would be really really nice to be able to get the point cloud in its current format (x,y,z,r,g,b) but also get camera location and orientation inside that same framework with a tag for the image name associated with that location (imagename,x,y,z,rho,theta,phi).
From the standpoint of doing the kinds of things sir_ivar is doing with turning point clouds into GIS products, this would offer a lot of utility. A fairly dense set of photos with a sparse set of ground control points with known coordinates would essentially tie all the images into a fixed frame of reference. At that point all sorts of possibilities open up.
Yeah, if we could get the coordinates of camera that took each frame, that would be great.
I can't wait to see that coming.
