There's research going on in this area.  Here are a few papers:
    http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/teaching/eproj/msc2004/abs/m3zs2.htm
    http://research.microsoft.com/research/pubs/view.aspx?pubid=918
there are probably many others.

I considered implementing one of these algorithms back in 2003 or so,
but instead I bought a digital camera with an orientation sensor.
