  author={Zhijun Yin and Liangliang Cao and Jiawei Han and Jiebo Luo and Thomas S. Huang},
Social media such as those residing in the popular photo sharing websites is attracting increasing attention in recent years. As a type of user-generated data, wisdom of the crowd is embedded inside such social media. In particular, millions of users upload to Flickr their photos, many associated with temporal and geographical information. In this paper, we investigate how to rank the trajectory patterns mined from the uploaded photos with geotags and timestamps. The main objective is to reveal… 

TOPTRAC: Topical Trajectory Pattern Mining

This paper proposes a novel probabilistic model to capture the semantic regions where people post messages with a coherent topic as well as the patterns of movement between the semantic areas, and develops an efficient inference algorithm to calculate model parameters.

Mining Popular Travel Routes from Social Network Geo-Tagged Data

This paper defined and implemented a novel methodology to mine popular travel routes from geo-tagged posts and infers interesting locations and frequent travel sequences among these locations in a given geo-spatial region.

KSTR: Keyword-Aware Skyline Travel Route Recommendation

A Keyword-aware Skyline Travel Route (KSTR) framework that use knowledge extraction from historical mobility records and the user's social interactions that demonstrate good performance compared to state-of-the-art works.

A context-aware personalized travel recommendation system based on geotagged social media data mining

Results show that the context-aware personalized method is able to predict tourists' preferences in a new or unknown city more precisely and generate better recommendations compared to other state-of-the-art landmark recommendation methods.

Clustering Geo-tagged Tweets for Advanced Big Data Analytics

An original clustering technique is presented, that groups similartrips to define tours and analyze the popular tours in relation with local geo-located territorial resources, and an novel Interoperable framework, based on web-service technology is presented.

Road-based travel recommendation using geo-tagged images

Analyzing social media data to discover mobility patterns at EXPO 2015: Methodology and results

How the number of visitors changed over time was discovered, which were the sets of most frequently visited pavilions, which countries the visitors came from, and the main flows of destination of visitors towards Italian cities and regions in the days after their visit to EXPO were discovered.



Mining city landmarks from blogs by graph modeling

A graph modeling framework to discover city landmarks by mining blog photo correlations with community supervision and achieves personalized tourist suggestions by the collaborative filtering of tourism logs and author correlations is deployed.

Travel route recommendation using geotags in photo sharing sites

A travel route recommendation method that makes use of the photographers' histories as held by Flickr, and incorporates user preference and present location information into the probabilistic behavior model by combining topic models and Markov models.

Mining interesting locations and travel sequences from GPS trajectories

This work first model multiple individuals' location histories with a tree-based hierarchical graph (TBHG), and proposes a HITS (Hypertext Induced Topic Search)-based inference model, which regards an individual's access on a location as a directed link from the user to that location.

Collaborative location and activity recommendations with GPS history data

This paper shows that, by using the location data based on GPS and users' comments at various locations, it can discover interesting locations and possible activities that can be performed there for recommendations and extensively evaluated the system.

Deducing trip related information from flickr

This work deduces answers to questions like "how long does it take to visit a tourist attraction?" or "what can I visit in one day in this city?" by comparing the automatically obtained visit duration times to manual estimations.

Trajectory pattern analysis for urban traffic

A trajectory pattern extraction framework, called T-Pattern, is applied to a real-world dataset, describing mobility of citizens within an urban area, and results are provided in a visual form, aimed at helping the analyst to better interpret them and link them to his/her existing background knowledge of the domain.

Photo2Trip: generating travel routes from geo-tagged photos for trip planning

This paper proposes to leverage existing travel clues recovered from 20 million geo-tagged photos collected from www.panoramio.com to suggest customized travel route plans according to users' preferences, and can provide a customized trip plan for a tourist.

Towards automatic extraction of event and place semantics from flickr tags

An approach for extracting semantics of tags, unstructured text-labels assigned to resources on the Web, based on each tag's usage patterns, and shows that the Scale-structure Identification method outperforms the existing techniques.

Enhancing semantic and geographic annotation of web images via logistic canonical correlation regression

A novel method of Logistic Canonical Correlation Regression (LCCR) is proposed for the annotation task that exploits the canonical correlation between heterogeneous features and an annotation lexicon of interest, and builds a generalized annotation engine based on canonical correlations in order to produce enhanced annotation for web images.


This work clusters a large-scale geotagged web photo collection into groups by location and then examines the representative images for each group to build a system to suggest tourist destinations based on visual matching and minimal user input.
