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.
