So I've been playing with Pivot for the last day or so and it occurred to me just how great it could be to explore Photosynths. The concept seems sound, being that Pivot operates off of Deep Zoom Collections (which synths are) and a simple xml file which should be able to be dynamically generated from queries against Photosynth's servers.
I'm interested in sorting by parameters like latitude, longitude, number of photos, number of points in primary pointcloud, total number of points in a single synth (including sub-synths, for lack of a better term), number of tags, using actual synth tags to filter, geo-aligned or not, geo-tagged or not, author, etcetera, etcetera.
While this could be even better if we had a way of tagging individual portions of individual photos in our synths, even sorting by things like I list above would be hugely enjoyable.
I have to assume that this has been tested at Live Labs or in Photosynth's digs at Bing Maps. Could you share, please?
