a searchable 3D view of our world (inside & out)

A single photo can be reconstructed into a 3-D scene with Make3D (article). Very soon, we should be able to reconstruct, view, and explore the entire world(inside & out(potentially)) in 3D. And the kicker is - you could view the same locations over time - or time lapse? My question is, can Google make it searchable (changes to the environment with dates/times/related history)? So you take the Make3D concept, and combine it with Photosynth + (my previous blog article). And more: Born from Seadragon? Photosynth on PBS . More Wired Science videos.
