interesting stuff this....

while thinking about a similar image depiction application, a similar 
idea came to my mind, which is about adding some "directional" 
information to normal X/Y/Z geo coordinates about the picture taken - 
has anybody of you came up with a some kind of property to also express 
the "direction" (N/S/W/E) where the pic was shoot ?

i.e. kinda of scenario "I took that pic at (X,Y,Z) looking North-West 
and I saw....." vs. looking South-East, which would be same (X,Y,Z) but 
different landscape....

that would give some better approximation to the point also....or not?

happy xmas
