Adventures in Time and Space: Leveraging Geo-Referenced Digital Photographs

   Mor Naaman, Stanford Computer Science

Seminar on People, Computers, and Design
Stanford University April 23, 2004

Lately, technology advancements made it feasible to add location information to digital photographs, namely the exact coordinates where each photo was taken. The location information can be extremely helpful in organizing and presenting image collections. In this talk, I will demonstrate some scenarios in which location may be helpful: in a single user's personal collection; in a "social" setting as a basis for sharing information; and in global collection(s) of photos as a clue for image search.

Mor Naaman is a 4th year PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at Stanford. Working in the Digital Libraries project, his research focuses on management of digital photographs. In previous careers, Naaman was a professional basketball player as well as a software developer. Naaman received his undergraduate degree from Tel Aviv University.
