3D Photography

Lots about cameras in the news lately …

Google Earth Blog writes about Pict Earth, with images from a camera mounted on an RC plane.

The images don’t register too well in the kml file though. Seems like kml 2.2 would work better for this, using the Camera element.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is working hard on Photosynth and has a a video showing the shuttle. Would be nice to see more on how photosynth handles time dimension.

slashgeo also points out news.com article mentioning 20,000 security cameras in China.

Hopefully a balance of power between government cameras and crowd cameras will emerge.
Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

Back in Silicon Valley, All Points points out how parents are wanting to track their kids. Could an electronic nanny service be outsourced to China?
