Can’t seem to get something to synth right? Curious about what lens is best? Ask your fellow Photosynthers here.
Hi, i just created a photosynth, but its not visible in bing maps. . y is that ?
Give it time. I think it took one of my synths two days to show up after it was geotagged. So, I don't think it's an automatic thing (or mine was really late for some reason). Maybe by the time you're reading this your synth is already showing up! Will be curious to hear how long it took.
We updated how we determine what synths end up on the map with a new algorithm, we are still fine tuning it. I agree these synths should show up on the map, and we’ll get them out there in our next update. Please let us know about others that do not show up on the map that you think should and we will look into why the algorithm is excluding them.
Thanks, The Photosynth Team
I've had my synths up for almost a week now and they are still not showing up on Bing maps. Is this still an posting algorithm problem?
yooberjb, I've loaded your McKinley synth in multiple browsers and clicked through to see it on Bing Maps. You might try clearing your browser's cache and reloading one of your synths to see if it works for you now, just in case you were loading an older version of the page, already downloaded from before the geotag had gone through.
On your smaller synths, although they are 100% synthy, I suspected that they may not have had enough photos in them to show up on the map, but I've clicked on two of the largest (11 photos and 9 photos) and saw their thumbnail load in the middle of the map, too. Perhaps they just became visible this afternoon.
Yooperjb - Im just took a look at your synths and they appear to showing up on Big Maps. Are you still seeing a problem? Please send me mail if you are.

Nathanael and TonyErnst,
I cleared my browser's cache (Firefox), and reloaded the page. Nothing. I went to photoshnth.net and viewed photosynth on Bing and it (Mckinley) showed up. After I removed the photo synth app from Bing and then reapplied it my photosynth was gone! And even stranger, when I select to only show those in the past 30 days it appears again, but when I select show all it disappears again. Something strange is going on indeed.
How about adding an icon on the photosynth's info page that indicates that it is on the Bing map?
It could be placed next to the geotaged icon.
Did you guys solve this during the "over 1 year ago" because I can't see that you have
Surveybot50, any geotagged photosynth or panorama should be showing on Bing Maps when you are browsing with the Photosynth Map App turned on: http://bit.ly/photosynthcoverage
The way that the pushpins work when you're browsing the map is that when several panoramas or photosynths are close to each other, the pushpins cluster into a single pushpin so that the map doesn't have to draw so many pushpins, but once you zoom in close enough, the pins should separate from each other and allow you to launch any of the individual synths or panos. So, if you're not seeing the pushpin for your synth or pano, just be sure that you've zoomed in close enough to the location on the map.
Sometimes if a photosynth isn't very well connected or doesn't have very many photos in it, its pushpin is automatically hidden, but panoramas don't really have those sorts of problems. I'm not sure how panoramas are filtered for quality, though.
Still seeing this issue. I would like a link in Photosynth that shows all my synths, and ideally, that I can share with firends. Right now, the panoramas I've created in Photosynth (under jkirkwood001) aren't showing up in Bing Maps with the PS Map App turned on.
