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.
I am currently attending Simon Fraser University in BC Canada and I want to use photosynth in a presentation I am doing. I have photosynthed a main area of the school and want to put it up on Bing Maps. How do I do this?
Here is the link to my photosynth:
Ryan - All you need to do is add a geotag and your synth will appear on Bing Maps. You can find a link to the map on the view page of your synth. Just click on the map image.
It looks like you figured it out. I can see your synth on the map now.
WOW this is pretty cool stuff!
Thanks for responding.
I'm hijacking this old thread to ask the same question as the OP. I've created 2 synths recently but none of the have been placed on Bing Maps yet. I've done other synths before and they only take a few hours to be placed there but with these last 2 it has been 2 days and nothing was shown on the maps. Any info about what's going on. Do I need to do something?
Thanks in advance!
These are the synts I'm talking about:
We've been having a problem with the service that talks to Bing Maps. We're on it and hope to have it fixed today.
Oh, ok. Thanks for the fast anwser! Have fun!
This should now be resolved. It may take a couple hours for things to work their way through the system though. Please let me know if you're not seeing your synths/panos on the map by tomorrow.
Is it possible to Geotag someone else's synth or panorama?
hey oosterwal, that strikes me as a potentially very interesting idea (assuming permission from the original work's synther/panoram was a necessary step to such a move). Without this sort of protection system, it may be too easy for people with a sense of humor to place synths all over the world (like in the White House, etc)
