Sharing, Discovering and Browsing Geotagged Pictures on the World Wide Web

Carlo Torniai • Steve Battle • Steve Cayzer

In recent years the availability of GPS devices and the development in Web technologies have produced a considerable growth in geographical applications available on the Web. In particular, the growing popularity of digital photography and photo sharing services has opened the way to a myriad of possible applications related to geotagged pictures. In this work we present an overview of the creation, sharing and use of geotagged pictures. We propose an approach to providing a new browsing experience of photo collections based on location and heading information metadata.
