Mobile search and visualization of historic multimedia data (Bachelor Thesis, Finished)
The City-Stories project deals with the search in multimedia collections based on manual annotations, properties of the content and spatiotemporal information. The goal would be to develop a browser which would grant access to historic documents to show the development of objects such as streets or buildings over time on the basis of historic depictions of these objects (captured as drawings or photographs) as well as their current state.
The vitrivr multimedia retrieval engine forms the base of the City-Stories project, being extended with spatiotemporal retrieval capabilities.
The goals of this bachelor project are as follows:
- Development of a mobile application which could retrieve historic documents via vitrivr. The app should enable the user to superimpose the retrieved documents over the current view of the relevant objects captured live via the devices integrated camera. The user should also be able to fade between the current and the historic view at will.
- Based on the geolocation of the historic multimedia data, the app should notify users when they are in the vicinity of an object for which superimposition is possible. After the user finds the exact position from which the historic document was created, this information should be captured and stored to aid and improve future user experience.
