Photographs relevant to each landmark tag were retrieved from Flickr and distinctive visual features were extracted from them. The results form ontology for landmarks, including their names, equivalent names, geographic hierarchy, and visual features. We also propose an efficient indexing method for content-based landmark search. The resultant ontology could be used in tag suggestion and co...
