Furness Abbey

Furness Abbey in Cumbria. This is the north-western end of the Abbey and probably represents about 10% of the remaining structure.

Eerrrrmm….an interesting synth! This was an experiment to see whether multiple panorama shots, taken 25 feet apart could enhance a synth without the image browsing appearing messy and confused. It does get confusing in parts, but it is possible to walk round if you choose your path very very carefully. The best way to view is by pressing play and be guided though.

The synth took 11hours to process on a 2.4Ghz Athlon with 1.5gb RAM.

a very interesting point cloud and great synth. I have found that it is best to upload around 100-150 photos (my machine is a little faster and has more RAM) at a time and then to combine then all at the end-that is how I did the Cologne Cathedral - the first group gave 100% synth and the second only 61%, combined it all worked out okay. See: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=368eeded-d574-4430-867b-94e003a354a7. The point cloud is not too bad on that one given the light conditions on the day I was in Cologne

Hello Fred, glad the synth didn't confuse too much.

I'll try your method out on the next big synth. Having said that, I don’t think processing time is entirely down to number of images within a synth, this 900+ pic effort took just 3hrs on the same computer and touched a RAM peak 75%: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=de7e9d58-3289-4d9f-beee-73fd81adf617. Presumably the copious amounts of repetition and relatively small space within the imagery didn’t push the synthers algorithms too much. This has also apparent when I've used photogrammetric software.

Fred, ignore the above comment, although it was a 900 pic synth I'd created 2 smaller versions, so the max upload was about 500 pics on a single synth.
