Abstract: We present a technical demonstration of a world-scale touristic landmark recognition engine. To build such an engine, we leverage ∼21.4 million images, from photo sharing websites and Google Image Search, and around two thousand web articles to mine the landmark names and learn the visual models. The landmark recognition engine incorporates 5312 landmarks from 1259 cities in 144 countries. This demonstration gives three exhibits: (1) a live landmark recognition engine that can visually recognize landmarks in a given image; (2) an interactive navigation tool showing landmarks on Google Earth; and (3) sample visual clusters (landmark model images) and a list of 1000 randomly selected landmarks from our recognition engine with their iconic images.
