Geotags, aerial synths, street synths… capturing events as they happen. If you can mark it on a map, then this is the place to talk about it.
When a synth is 'geotaged' and you want to see the place on the map, the plane is very fast but then you only see a big Photosynth-logo hiding exactly what you want to see :-((((((((((((
Could you make it transparent (only a soft circle) so we can enjoy the aerial view, or even bird's eye view ???
We could compare, if it's possible to zoom, the reality with the point cloud: no problem with St Pauls cathedral in London, but hard to see a garden or a little church on the countryside.
Yes, there should probably be some kind of on/off button for the icons. Great suggestion.
