Has anyone on the Photosynth team reached out to The British School at Rome and The University of Auckland to see whether they would be willing to upload full resolution copies of their object movies of Pompeii artifacts to the new Photosynth preview? I've admired their object movies for several years now.
They're currently displayed on their site as QuickTime VR objects: http://www.proxima-veritati.auckland.ac.nz/insula9/objects.html
and panoramas: http://www.proxima-veritati.auckland.ac.nz/insula9/panoramas.html
I think that their objects would make beautiful Spins (clearly) and seeing their panoramas uploaded via ICE would be the way to go on that front if at all.
Great idea Nate. I will follow up. Hopefully they are still maintaining this and have hi-res imagery available. David.
