We have alot of science, computer and engineering folks around here so I thought I'd post this nifty feature I found.

It's called a photosynth. The computer compares a series of images and determines how they relate in 3 dimensional space. You can then navigate the 3D space of pictures. Geographic location information is included so you can find photosynth collections all over the map. Its only a beta, so it is somewhat awkward and buggy, but neat nonetheless.

Bing Maps Beta

The photosynths people have produced in Huntsville are so-so, but there are others in larger cities that really have a 3 dimensional feel to them.

(let me know if the link doesn't work, it should take you directly to the space and rocket center photosynth)
