Every day millions of geo-referenced, high oblique images are captured and shared via Internet websites such as Flickr and Panoramio , often within minutes of capture. For example, the Flickr API tells us that over half a million geo-referenced photos were taken in the Alps alone in 2007. There is a clear trend: geo-tagging photos for the sole purpose of placing one’s photos ‘on the map’, either automatically (via GPS) or manually (via GUIs), is becoming increasingly popular. It is this ever-expanding source of freely available ground-level, up-to-date, high resolution imagery and associated meta-data that this research is beginning to exploit.

Abstract

Every day millions of geo-referenced, high oblique images are captured and shared via Internet websites such as Flickr and Panoramio , often within minutes of capture. For example, the Flickr API tells us that over half a million geo-referenced photos were taken in the Alps alone in 2007. There is a clear trend: geo-tagging photos for the sole purpose of placing one’s photos ‘on the map’, either automatically (via GPS) or manually (via GUIs), is becoming increasingly popular. It is this ever-expanding source of freely available ground-level, up-to-date, high resolution imagery and associated meta-data that this research is beginning to exploit.
