- 1 Live Maps
- 2 Sample Web page doesn't work on Mac OS X
- 3 Project Looking Glass
- 4 Fair use rationale for Image:Photosynth.jpg
- 5 turned the program names into links, is that the right Rhinocerus?
- 6 Maybe a reference to simular Open Source alternative should be in place?
- 7 Requested move
- 8 Microsoft Photosynth has been shut down
I'd like to point out Photosynth technology (or something that looks a lot like it) is now being used for the birds-eye view in Windows Live Maps.
- Yep, that's the same Seadragon technology they've been working on. It's pretty sweet... Datameister (talk) 04:55, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
Sample Web page doesn't work on Mac OS X
Should it be noted in the article that the sample Web page functions only in Windows XP SP2 and Vista? --Wizardoest 15:46, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
Project Looking Glass
What's the connection to Project Looking Glass? Why are there links (in "see also") to there from here and to here from there? Tophtucker 06:00, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Photosynth.jpg
Image:Photosynth.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
I don't believe Rhinoceros does this out of the box - there is a Photogrammetry plugin for Rhino called Rhinophoto but it is not developed by Robert McNeel & Associates...--Fraser (talk) 22:06, 25 June 2010 (UTC)
