Photosynth - New Overhead View and the du Carpark

We have been doing some photosynth work recently on an automatic workflow for 600+ image captures and upload - so far its working well and we will put up a post shortly, in the meantime photosynth now includes a new over head view, as the video below illustrates:

Photosynth never got as much coverage here on du as it deserved, its only the last few weeks with the ability to mass record images and extract a mesh out of the system that it has grabbed out attention. For those who cant wait you can see the unflattering 'du carpark' over on the main photosynth site. The main point to note is that is was automated and made in under 5 minutes.

We hope to capture something a little more interesting for the main post on the subject...
