WeKnowIt Image Recognizer

This application allows mobile phones users to quickly discover the location and name of photographed objects.
It was developed by Software Mind S.A. The aim of the application is to provide user with the detailed information on the location and name of a POI that she photographed. The application uses services developed by WeKnowIt project partners in order to recognize object (POI - Point On Interest) on picture, determine its geolocation, and determine tags associated with this POI. The ability of image recognition is limited to the database of pictures held by VIRaL tool (Visual Image Retrieval and Localization) which currently contains more than 1 mln Flickr® images from 30 european cities. POIs are retrieved from Yahoo! database. Additionally application contacts Wikipedia and gathers information on the recognized POI.
