Detection of Disaster-Affected Cultural Heritage Sites from Social Media Images Using Deep Learning Techniques

Pakhee Kumar, Ferda Ofli, Muhammad Imran, Carlos Castillo
2020 ACM Journal on Computing and Cultural Heritage  
This paper describes a method for early detection of disaster-related damage to cultural heritage.  ...  Then, we automatically categorize these images according to two dimensions: whether they are indeed a photo in which a cultural heritage resource is the main subject, and whether they represent damage.  ...  Many images, which were collected from publicly available websites using Google Image Search, are not useful for training an automatic classifier and were thus removed.  ...
