Finding Wormholes with Flickr Geotags
Presented at the European Conference on Information Retrieval, Milton Keynes, UK
We propose a kernel convolution method to predict similar locations (wormholes) based on human travel behaviour. A scaling parameter can be used to define a set of relevant users to the target location and we show how the geotags of these users can effectively be aggregated to predict a ranking of similar locations. We evaluate results on world and city level using several independent test collections.
