GeoSynth - using Bing Maps

GeoSynth™, a derivative product of Microsoft® Photosynth™ enables fully automated reconstruction of 3D scenes from digital photos or video and an intuitive means to visualize the images within a 3D geospatial context known as a Synth. GeoSynth is intended for users who need an analytical capability without internet connectivity.

•Combine views from a wide time span (4D)
•Standalone capability for offline usage w/o Internet connectivity
•KML map products and point clouds exported for OGC tool access

Those unfamiliar with Photosynth can visit Photosynth.com, Microsoft’s revolutionary web platform that enables Windows Live users to freely synthesize and view 2d and 3d environments from photo collections.

GeoSynth customers can take a customized version with this same technology offline for standalone usage in the field or on secure intranets.
