How to Google Maps on Vimeo

2009 Aug 31, 4:53From Ira as part of The Balloon Project "... took the lo-fi diy map making essentials (portable helium tank, party balloons, and a disposable video camera) to Paris, France, where they launched a video camera into the sky not knowing where it would go, and created some very unique aerial cartography of the Place de la Concorde.' I'd love to see this run through photo stitching software like Photosynth and then layered on Google Maps.PermalinkCommentsmap balloon art ira-mowen france paris

Photosynth of my Office

2008 Aug 26, 11:08

I've had a little fun messing around with Photosynth, a Microsoft research project turned into a Live service. You upload a bunch of photos from around the same area and it makes a 3D panorama out of them. For instance, here's National Geographic's photosynth of the sphinx and pyramids in Egypt. Messing around with this I've made one of half a vase of roses, and a larger photosynth of my office.

Tag Metadata in Feeds

2008 Aug 25, 10:13

As noted previously, my page consists of the aggregation of my various feeds and in working on that code recently it was again brought to my attention that everyone has different ways of representing tag metadata in feeds. I made up a list of how my various feed sources represent tags and list that data here so that it might help others in the future.

Tag markup from various sources
Source Feed Type Tag Markup Scheme One Tag Per Element Tag Scheme URI Human / Machine Names Example Markup

Microsoft launches 3D wonder Photosynth for consumers | Webware : Cool Web apps for everyone - CNET

2008 Aug 22, 5:35Photosynth now available and easy to use: "Photosynth, a technology demo from Microsoft Live Labs, has graduated from its "ooh, that's pretty" status to being a viable Web service for consumers. The technology, which takes a grouping of photographs and stitches them into a faux 3D environment, can now be implemented with photos you've taken on your digital camera or mobile phone, and converted right on your computer. Previously, the process of stitching these photos together took weeks of processing on specially configured server arrays. With its latest version, Microsoft has managed to shrink that into around the time it takes to upload your photos."PermalinkCommentsvia:felix42 photosynth photos photography 3d microsoft free tool
