ATLAS

Advanced Tourism Planning System

GSRT Collaboration Grant
2013-2015

atlasThe 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.
