Geo-tagging for imprecise regions of different sizes

Robert C. Pasley, Paul D. Clough, Mark Sanderson
2007 Proceedings of the 4th ACM workshop on Geographical information retrieval - GIR '07  
We find that the data gathered for smaller regions (compared with larger ones) is more "fine-grained" which has an effect on the type of resource most useful for geo-tagging and its success.  ...  One such use for this information is to enable the study of vernacular regions: informal places referred to on a day-to-day basis, but with no official entry in geographical resources, such as gazetteers  ...  Table 1 . 1 Geo-tagging effectiveness for regions of different sizes Region Correct Error Geo- refs False positives Incorrect Incorrect gazetteer The Midlands 2523 21.2% 50% 28.7% 26.1%  ...

2016 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
With the increasing popularity of mobile devices and location based services, massive amount of geo-textual data (e.g., geo-tagged tweets) is being generated everyday.  ...  First, it has many applications to retrieve a region for exploration that satisfies user-specified conditions (e.g., the size and shape of the region) while maximizing some other conditions (e.g., the  ...  Acknowledgments This work is supported in part by a Tier-1 grant awarded by Ministry of Education Singapore (RG22/15).  ...

Evaggelos Spyrou, Michalis Korakakis, Vasileios Charalampidis, Apostolos Psallas, Phivos Mylonas
2017 Algorithms  
In order to identify them, we exploit two types of metadata, namely location-based information included within geo-tagged photos that we collect from Flickr, along with plain simple textual information  ...  Due to this proliferation of data volume, there has been an explosion of new application domains for information mined from social networks.  ...  tag within the given region; (b) the occurrences of the tag within the given region and (c) the average percentage of a tag among those selected by the user for the given region.  ...

HUGVid

He Ma, Roger Zimmermann, Seon Ho Kim
2012 Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems - SIGSPATIAL '12  
To this end we introduce HUGVid, a modeling and indexing approach for uncertain geo-tagged videos. We construct an uncertainty model for video frames and segments.  ...  Therefore, robust error-tolerance is an essential feature of any geo-tagged video search application.  ...  The contribution of our work can be summarized as follows: • Uncertain data model for individual geo-tagged video frames.  ...

SnowWatch: Snow Monitoring through Acquisition and Analysis of User-Generated Content [article]

Roman Fedorov, Piero Fraternali, Chiara Pasini, Marco Tagliasacchi
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The proposed system integrates an automatic acquisition and analysis of photographs and webcam images depicting Alpine mountains.  ...  We present a system for complementing snow phenomena monitoring with virtual measurements extracted from public visual content.  ...  If some data are missing or incorrect (i.e. despite the geo-tag imprecisely saved in the photograph the user is sure about the correct location of the photograph) those can be edited and the photograph  ...

Capturing Place Semantics on the GeoSocial Web

Ehab ElGindy, Alia Abdelmoty
2014 Journal on Data Semantics  
In this paper a novel framework is proposed for the analysis of geo-folksonomies and the automatic discovery of place-related semantics.  ...  Massive interest in geo-referencing of personal resources is evident on the web.  ...  The performance of the different MSR methods in terms of quality and accuracy is found to be dependent on the size and type of the input data [23] .  ...

Predicting Geo-informative Attributes in Large-Scale Image Collections Using Convolutional Neural Networks

Stefan Lee, Haipeng Zhang, David J. Crandall
2015 2015 IEEE Winter Conference on Applications of Computer Vision  
Geographic location is a powerful property for organizing large-scale photo collections, but only a small fraction of online photos are geo-tagged.  ...  We learn models for these attributes using a large (noisy) set of geo-tagged images from Flickr by training deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs).  ...  For the histograms, we computed 8-bin histograms over each RGB plane within spatial regions of dif- Table 2 : Classification accuracies for geo-spatial attributes.  ...
