Amato G., Bolettieri P., Falchi F. Landmark recognition in VISITO: VIsual Support to Interactive TOurism in Tuscany. In: ICMR'11 - 1st ACM International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (Trento, 17-19 Aprile 2011). Abstract, article n. 61. ACM, 2011.
We present the VIsual Support to Interactive TOurism in Tuscany (VISITO Tuscany) project which offers an interactive guide for tourists visiting cities of art accessible via smartphones. The peculiarity of the system is that user interaction is mainly obtained by the use of images -- In order to receive information on a particular monument users just have to take a picture of it. VISITO Tuscany, using techniques of image analysis and content recognition, automatically recognize the photographed monuments and pertinent information is displayed to the user. In this paper we illustrate how the use of landmarks recognition from mobile devices can provide the tourist with relevant and customized information about various type of objects in cities of art.
