What a wonderful synth. It's great being able to move between the rooms, visiting the little cubby holes, cupboards and the UKs (maybe Europe’s) oldest loo. It would really improve the synth if the signs were added as highlights. Thanks for posting it.

EdLee (Over 1 year ago)
Hi JCCW, very interesting synth! Are you allowed to walk down to the bottom? It'd be nice to see close-up high-res photos of the various signs and plaques on the ground, and also to see the village from the ground level and all the different dwellings interiors and walls. Thanks.

I've geotagged it now, thanks.

Jonathan (Over 1 year ago)
this is really fascinating! can you add a geotag so we can map it? thanks for sharing

It is very interesting to know that famous monuments can be seen in an interactive manner in which are trying to get close to what you really want and see the details. Maybe follow up to what Dan Brown wrote in his books. Regards, http://www.muwasalat.com

i find it hard to think that it was possible in those day that some one would be able to point with sutch clarity

@Jonathan When I went in, I was expecting the same thing. However almost everyone was taking pictures, so after deliberating for a bit I just did it too. The guards were completely resigned and just stood chatting with each other. The lights were dimmed (it looks even brighter in these photos because of the low f/# I was shooting on) so just about everybody without DSLRs and fast lenses were getting naught but blurry garbage.

Jonathan (Over 1 year ago)
How were you able to take this many photos without being busted? When I was there, I remember the guards constantly saying 'No Photos'

Thanks Nathanael! looking for some free time as well!

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
Lost, I'm surprised that I never commented on this inspiring synth. You certainly challenged me to try larger structures and I'm sure you did the same for others. I wonder if the inner and outer walls could be tightened up by adding a short orbit of the left and right sides of each doorway at minimum and possibly the same treatment of the top of the doorway as well. I know that means more photos which is a problem, but I'd love to see it done. Looking forward to your coming synths when you next have some free time.

lostinthetriangle (Over 1 year ago)
Thanks blaise, I struggled to upload the pictures (out of memory errors) since then the software has been updated so I might retry a large upload again. I also wish I had more time this summer for shooting pictures but have been way to busy. Be glad when things slow down here in the triangle!

Jonathan (Over 1 year ago)
very cool. well done.

Nathanael.Lawrence (Over 1 year ago)
Nice work, Robert! This synth is a great poster child for what can be achieved with the "many overlapping panoramas" method of shooting. How about a geotag? The point cloud is worthy.

Unfortunately no magic. ICE did the trick. Stitched the stretched edges of the straight down photo’s , with no resulting gap at all. I was standing at the Dom tower at approx. 100 meters height.

Wow, this is a very nice view of the city! How did you manage to take pictures from this location? Is the camera floating somehow? I like that you can look straight down into that open air cafe.

Hey Nathanael, Thanks for the investigation. I looked into it a while back and it turns out this is actually pretty easy to get working. Unfortunately, the team is very booked and I'm not actively working on iSynth right now :( If we resume working on mobile stuff in the future, I'm sure we'll add this feature.

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
Actually... that was Aseem Kishore, not Daniel, and Aseem's schedule seems overbooked already, so perhaps that's not the direction to pursue, but I still maintain that since he's already done that sort of thing, he'd be someone useful to speak with.

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
Greg, for what it's worth, Daniel Gasienica over on the Seadragon team pulled off launching Seadragon Mobile from within Seadragon Ajax on http://seadragon.com so the same thing should be more than possible with Photosynth. To me, this would bridge an absolutely massive gap in satisfaction, allowing me to open unlisted synths, more quickly move between viewing and commenting, etc. etc. Some way would definitely be needed to drop back out to Safari on the synth's page from within iSynth (moreso than simply going to the author's profile) as well to make the experience sweet, but I believe that it's all possible. I know that iSynth doesn't have the official blessing and the team most likely doesn't want to have any obligations to make sure that the app continues to work with the site in the future, but maybe Daniel could work something up for the site if no one on your team has the time with you coding up the way to drop back to Safari after viewing a synth.

LucAskAng (Over 1 year ago)
Really cool.

Greg (Over 1 year ago)
Nathanael, No idea what the technical challenge of a feature like that would be. I'd imagine it would either be very easy or completely impossible (for the reasons you mentioned). I don't know what the future holds for Photosynth on the iPhone, but I'll certainly keep your suggestion in mind if I continue to develop it.

It looks like the left and right sides of the front facade matched due to the symmetry so that the side wall looks like it's intersecting overhead.

KMRBJL (Over 1 year ago)
I have observed in the overhead view. there is something wierd about it.

Nathanael (Over 1 year ago)
It would seem that symmetry in the architecture was no friend to Photosynth's reconstruction. What's with the funny intersecting walls in overhead view?
