Advanced Tourism Planning System
GSRT Collaboration Grant
The central tenet of the project is that the extraction of event and place semantics as well as the exploitation of visitor preferences will leverage cross-media/multimedia information retrieval and recommendation for e-tourism. That is, utilizing such information in multimedia semantic analysis enhances location-based multimedia services, object detection/recognition, and media description/presentation with cultural/region difference.
Our team contributions are in the design and development of adequate algorithms for spatio-temporal information retrieval, their implementation as web-services, that support content discovery, review, annotation and geo-tagging, using Semantic Web techniques, and standards as SPARQL and OAI/PMH.
