Photosynth's First B'day

On August 20th 2008, Photosynth.net opened its doors for people around the world for the first time. Here’re the key stats from Photosynth's first year. They're accurate to within a few percent, with the exception of the FLOPs number which’s only accurate to an order of magnitude. 422,508 synths created | 15,880,950 photos synthed and uploaded15,541,978,306 3D points […]

On August 20th 2008, Photosynth.net opened its doors for people around the world for the first time. Here’re the key stats from Photosynth's first year. They're accurate to within a few percent, with the exception of the FLOPs number which’s only accurate to an order of magnitude.

422,508 synths created | 15,880,950 photos synthed and uploaded
15,541,978,306 3D points in all point clouds combined (15.6 billion) | 26,445,915,945,733,700 number of floating point operations performed in all computations (26 quadrillion)
8,979,357,357 peak simultaneous FLOPs of all computations (8.9 GigaFLOPs) | 472,000 peak synths viewed per day

The team is working on a Silverlight 3-based viewer that we'll be releasing in the fall, and’ll bring smoother transitions, less network chatter, and a whole new "angle" on viewing synths. Second initiative is great integration with Bing Maps.
