In 2009 we also tried to create "photosynths" of parts of the Leaves & Lizards property. PhotoSynth is a kind of pseudo-3d photograph viewer that allows a view or 3d space to be photographed in 3d. Adjoining images are matched up so that a user can navigate between images. Some have likened it to Google's StreetView product, and Microsoft and used the same underlying technology for their street-side views in Bing Maps.
Our initial results can probably be described as "fair". Forests and trees were always going to be a challenge for PhotoSynth. For example, it is going to have problems matching images of a teak plantation when all the trees look the same. Overall the PhotoSynths were about 50% "synthy" (ie. about half could be be stitched), and some areas of forest were PhotoSynthed surprisingly well.
You can try navigating through the following two PhotoSynths, but the slideshow option can also be used. The slideshow option is particularly recommended for the Bird Path.
This PhotoSynth was created around the cabin area. Most of the images are taken along the path connecting the three cabins, but also includes the steps up to the 'Monkey Cabin'. A number of small closeups and multiple 360 degree views are also included.
This PhotoSynth traces the bird path that runs from the turnaround below the cabins, to the pasture below the stables. The sequence stops at the bottom of the slope up to the stables.
Parts of this PhotoSynth work very well with 360 degree views, and forward movement along stretches of path. However, there are gaps which PhotoSynth has not been able to "stitch" properly. It is recommended that you use the slideshow option for this PhotoSynth to give a linear sequence that is easier to follow.
