Photosynth is a software application from Microsoft Live Labs and the University of Washington that analyzes digital photographs and generates a three-dimensional model of the photos and a point cloud of a photographed object. Pattern recognition components compare portions of images to create points, which are then compared to convert the image into a model.

Numerous photos of the Red Tower were uploaded to the Photosynth website and this made possible the creation of a 3D image of the Red Tower, as well as an interesting point cloud, indicating the position from where the photos were actually taken.
