As for plans for how -- I sent an email to the OAM list for advice, and
haven't gotten a reply.

As for hosting, that's even more of a mystery.

I'm not planning to put them all online in the short term -- while flickr
would be able ot hold all 10GB of data, it would be an almost imposable ot
access format.

If anyone know how to process this type of data, or has even a little info
that may be hlpful, please come with it.

I had a go with http://warper.geothings.net -- the results were
disappointing, and exceedingly slow. It's a good service, but it's designed
for rectifying maps, not oblique photos.

I have been investigating the possibilities of using something like Panorama
Tools / hugin -- they are designed for panoramas, but the idea of auto
identifying matching points between a set of images, and using them as the
reference points for stitching sounds very appealing. If anyone knows of a
way to do this, please help.

If anyone wants a copy of the complete data set for anything open
source/creative commons/sensible -- let me know, we can come ot some
arangment involving posting things.
