Topic: Geotag link to Bing map

I wish the geotags could take you to Bing maps. I know that there is a feature in Bing maps that allows you to "dive" into synths from the map. It would be nice to have a reverse functionality, i.e. when somebody is looking at my photosyth page they could click on a geotag and it would bring them to Bing map of that location.

Best,
Sergei

Serega72, how is what currently happens when you click on the little map icon or "See this Photosynth on Bing Maps" link below every geotagged synth and panorama different than what you're asking for?

Ever since Photosynth launched over two years ago the geotag link has taken you to a Bing Map of the area (although it was still called Virtual Earth when Photosynth launched).

I didn't even notice it - I rarely scrolled down there or paid any attention to what's below the photosynth assuming there were just a bunch of ads and "suggested" links... :)

Thanks.

ツ No ads so far. Hopefully that will continue to be the case. It would be really sad to see the site cluttered up.

How can you geotag someone else's synth or panorama?

Oosterwal, unfortunately there is not currently a way to contribute geotags to other people's synths or panoramas.
