How to precisely align your Photosynth with Bing Maps

Looks like Microsoft has just enabled an ability to exactly alight you Photosynth with the location on maps. This feature allows you to change the scale and the orientation of you Photosynth so when you zoom in using Bing maps it is aligned correctly with that location… Looks very cool and I have not seen any word from Microsoft about this feature so I am not even sure if this  is supposed to be public yet.

Photos and video showing how it work below:

Chose your Photosynth and click Edit Synth
