Description

This synth is an attempt to connect VE imagery with real snapshots. The trick I used can be easily seen in the image:

http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=a65da837-270c-4fd5-b487-08875dddf92b&i=0:1:0&z=720.34783112592&g=1&p=-5.86405e-012:-2.03476e-010&m=false&c=447.935:113.365:1410.69&d=-0.0482755:2.53806:1.81303

I took an aerial view of the Smith Tower and superimosed it directly on the VE equivlent. I also have the original images in the Synth. The VE images match to the outer portion of the image, while the aerial shots match to the inner portion.

As you can see (except for the outer most images - Photosynth has some problem with extreme zooms), I can connect Seattle to a map of the whole world.

Cool huh?
