I doubt there's enough parallax during the high-phase sequence to strongly constrain the plume's sources along the line of sight, but from postings in this thread, it's going to be pretty easy to see where lines of sight to plume bases cross the terminator and cross tiger stripes near the terminator. I very strongly suspect there are multiple vents along each of the tiger stripes, with most relatively weak. This seems to me to suggest that either there are relatively few extra-warm spots exposed within a stripe at one time, the hottest being discrete plume sources, or that a more active gysering source may be involved.

I can, however, imagine a vent with the hottest ice (with the highest vapor pressure) at the bottom, spewing upwards through a fissure or pipe, producing relatively collimated plumes like we seem to see in these pics.
