INSTREET - Application for Urban Photograph Localization
The paper proposes a solution to the problem of geolocation of a photograph based on comparison of its content to a geolocated database of street view images. The proposed algorithm allows the pinpointing of the location where a photograph was taken. In order to solve this problem we have proposed an algorithm based on MPEG-7 features. We have conducted large-scale tests (4% of area of the city of Krakow, Poland) that prove that the algorithm is characterized by high accuracy at the cost of high computing power required.
