A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

June outing - Photosynth

Postby Matt » Fri May 07, 2010 11:57 pm

In June... let's get together and create one of these:
http://photosynth.net/explore.aspx?filt ... me=AllTime

I have been studying how these work and what makes for the best ones and I think we can top them all.

Where?
There are many options, but i'm thinking Niagara region... I think Fort Niagara Historic Sitewould be great, but the admission cost is $10/person.
Niagara Falls from the observation tower on the American side would be nice too, but there may be just too many people (which we can work with, or around).

Basically any site would work as long as there is a centralized hub from which the photographers can radiate out capturing photos from.

For some reason I cannot install Silverlight.

I want a more "organic" location,
like a park, or historic site... something that we can provide as a resource as well as being a cool project.
The goal would be to snap thousands of shots of everything we see, and then have this software combine them into a 3D thing.

Charlotte.... I like that...
hmmm
anyone want to spend 2 hours photographing everything they can at the beach or at high falls?
High falls may be better (simpler 3D environment) than Charlotte and if our first try works, we can always do the beach as the next challenge.
