Yes, indeed, due to the great distance only quite big changes (several hundred meters) in the view will improve photosynths perception of the 3d information. however from similar perspectives I only have access to this one building. The images are taken from slightly different locations out of that building so the leftmost/rightmost images are perhaps 20 meters or so away from each other. likely shooting from quite different angles (in my experience at least 15-20 degrees away) will greatly improve things however I did not yet learn to fly to take the images ;)

Sorry, I am still new to photosynth. This is just a guess. When I looked at your point cloud the tall buildings in the background appear close to the building in the foreground. Would a few other photos of the buildings in the background from different views of the city improve the synthing by giving them a distance reference? Also, if you were to move the camera for a second reference view of the foreground buildings would that help? I am waiting for a clear warm day to try to shoot my town.

With this economy, I may never get to visit Hawaii. It is such a beautiful state. Thanks for sharing. The idea of using a kite is brilliant.

No advice, just props. :-)

Naaah, it's all good. I'm new to Photosynth, so the more advice the merrier. I do plan to go back, and include a full session from the overlook. Ideally I'd walk in and make stops along the way to get as many angles as possible. But it's gonna make for a long day!

Don't you hate it when you do something amazing, and everyone on photosynth responds with their own brand of advice? AS IF! This rocks. You're my idol.

Thanks! The house is in the Stockholm archipelago, Sweden. It was moved to the island at the beginning of the 20th century from the Dalarna County, where this kind of house is typical. The house is all built with manual tools.

That house is amazing. Thanks for posting. I zoomed in for a close-up of the log joints. It looks like there are absolutely no air gaps. Do you have any other information on the house? Was that done with manual tools? What city is it near? Is that a typical architecture for the area? Sorry for all the questions. I saw a house in Denmark that I don't have enough pictures of to photosynth. Is this house in Sweden? If I had known that this technology was coming during my trip in 2005, I would have filled many SD cards with photos. There are some really amazing old houses in that area of the world.
