Annotating and navigating tourist videos
Due to the rapid increase in video capture technology, more and more tourist videos are captured every day, creating a challenge for organization and association with metadata. In this paper, we present a novel system for annotating and navigating tourist videos. Placing annotations in a video is difficult because of the need to track the movement of the camera. Navigation of a regular video is also challenging due to the sequential nature of the media. To overcome these challenges, we introduce a system for registering videos to geo-referenced 3D models and analyzing the video contents. We also introduce a novel scheduling algorithm for showing annotations in video. We show results in automatically annotated videos and in a map-based application for browsing videos. Our user study indicates the system is very useful. Categories and Subject Descriptors H5.1 [Information interfaces and presentation]: Multimedia Information Systems - Video.
