Large Scale Visual Geo-Localization of Images in Mountainous Terrain

Large Scale Visual Geo-Localization of Images in Mountainous Terrain

This video was recorded at 12th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), Firenze 2012. Given a picture taken somewhere in the world, automatic geo-localization of that image is a task that would be extremely useful e.g. for historical and forensic sciences, documentation purposes, organization of the world's photo material and also intelligence applications. While tremendous progress has been made over the last years in visual location recognition within a single city, localization in natural environments is much more difficult, since vegetation, illumination, seasonal changes make appearance-only approaches impractical. In this work, we target mountainous terrain and use digital elevation models to extract representations for fast visual database lookup. We propose an automated... Show More
