An Exploratory Study of Human Performance in Image Geolocation Tasks

  title={An Exploratory Study of Human Performance in Image Geolocation Tasks},
  author={Sneha Mehta and Chris North and Kurt Luther},
Identifying the precise location where a photo was taken is an important task in domains ranging from journalism to counter-terrorism. Yet, geolocation of arbitrary images is difficult for computer vision techniques and time-consuming for expert analysts. Understanding how humans perform geolocation can suggest rich opportunities for improvement, but little is known about their processes. This paper presents an exploratory study of image geolocation tasks performed by novice and expert humans… CONTINUE READING
