Topic: Local Synth for Local use

I would think that Photosynth could be a very powerful tool for industrial documentation and training.  However, much of what I would like to document is Company proprietary and company regulations would not allow me to upload any of the photos anywhere.  What I would like is to do is construct the Photosynth locally and keep it on our local LAN.  Is anything like this in the works?

If you can get your company to fund it, there is a commercial version of Photosynth for local use under the banner of 'Geosynth'.

The other alternative is the recently announced Photosynth Commercial License.

This second option still involves uploading the photos here to Photosynth.net but you would have unlimited storage space for 'Unlisted' synths. The privacy works such that no search result anywhere on the site would link to your synth, nor should external search engines be able to catalogue them, however anyone that you gave a URL to could leak it on the web. Your company's need for privacy being what you describe, I have my doubts as to whether this second option is the one for you.

Hi, is there any way to use Photosynth as company for commercial usage, but also to get all date to work on our local server + without information about that this is made with Photosynth?

We have map with street view, but we use krpano for panoarmic images and with combination of Photosynth for moving in map and with Krpano for panoramic images will be great combination?

Links that you mentioned don't work (http://www.vexcel.com/viscollaborate/geosynth/index.asp and http://photosynth.net/commercial.aspx)
Hi, cosicjasmin, 

The reply above is several years old now, but the links did work at the time.
You can use the Internet Archive to see what used to be at those links. https://waybackmachine.org

Your best bet today is to get in touch with David Gedye who runs the Photosynth group at Microsoft.
You'll find his email address on his profile: https://photosynth.net/userprofilepage.aspx?user=David-Photosynth-Team

They also have a Facebook and Twitter page that you may find them more responsive to than the forums: https://photosynth.net/contactus.aspx
