3D Rome built in a day using 150,000 Flickr photos

The team used a specially-devised algorithm to detect and arrange photos showing various angles of the same building. The same algorithm then analysed these images – taking into account the viewpoint of the photographer – to produce composite 3D models
Rome’s most famous landmarks were generated in less than 24 hours from 150,000 photos, while 250,000 images were scanned to make 3D models of Venice.
