    as a place:

    a place, especially a high place, which provides a good clear view of an area:
    From our lofty vantage point, we could see the city spread out below us.

    as an opinion:

    a particular personal way of thinking or set of opinions:
    The documentary contains a first-hand description of political life in Havana from the vantage point of a senior bureaucrat

    thanks!
    the second interpretation has the same meaning of "point of view"?
    thanks again.
