Microsoft’s Photosynth Team Merges With Virtual Earth

We’ve all played with programs like Group Shoot that stitch photographs together — but Microsoft’s first public demo of Photosynth showed this was possible in 3 Dimensions!
So I was excited to read on Chris Pendleton’s MSDN Blog that "Microsoft’s Photosynth Team Merging With Virtual Earth". I always felt these two services belonged together.
Our near future includes many mobile devices with both GPSs & Cameras. It will be trivial for our pictures to be uploaded to the Internet with tagged geo-coded information.
Even better — most people will have no clue nor care about "geo-coding"! They’ll simply think it’s cool their pictures are placed on a map, and automatically stitched into a Photosynth 3D World!
