Abstract

This paper describes an approach to model data extracted from several geospatial data sources based on the geo-metadata from a smartphone photograph. The model enables the geospatial data sources to be cross referenced and inferences made about the relationships between the data and the photograph. The service provided by our system takes a photograph and generates semantic geospatial enrichments that can be annotated to the photograph.
