Incremental Tag Suggestion for Landmark Image Collections

Sutasinee Chimlek, Punpiti Piamsa-nga


In recent social media applications, descriptive information is collected through user tagging, such as face recognition, and automatic environment sensing, such as GPS. There are many applications that recognize landmarks using information gathered from GPS data. However, GPS is dependent on the location of the camera, not the landmark. In this research, we propose an automatic landmark tagging scheme using secondary regions to distinguish between similar landmarks. We propose two algorithms: 1) landmark tagging by secondary objects and 2) automatic new landmark recognition. Images of 30 famous landmarks from various public databases were used in our experiment. Results show increments of tagged areas and the improvement of landmark tagging accuracy.
