Creating map-based storyboards for browsing tour videos (p. 13-22)

Abstract plus

Watching a long unedited video is usually a boring experience. In this paper we examine a particular subset of videos, tour videos, in which the video is captured by walking about with a running camera with the goal of conveying the essence of some place. We present a system that makes the process of sharing and watching a long tour video easier, less boring, and more informative. To achieve this, we augment the tour video with a map-based storyboard, where the tour path is reconstructed, and coherent shots at different locations are directly visualized on the map. This allows the viewer to navigate the video in the joint location-time space. To create such a storyboard we employ an automatic pre-processing component to parse the video into coherent shots, and an authoring tool to enable the user to tie the shots with landmarks on the map. The browser-based viewing tool allows users to navigate the video in a variety of creative modes with a rich set of controls, giving each viewer a unique, personal viewing experience. Informal evaluation shows that our approach works well for tour videos compared with conventional media players.

Integrated videos and maps for driving directions (p. 223-232)

Abstract plus

While onboard navigation systems are gaining in importance, maps are still the medium of choice for laying out a route to a destination and for way finding. However, even with a map, one is almost always more comfortable navigating a route the second time due to the visual memory of the route. To make the first time navigating a route feel more familiar, we present a system that integrates a map with a video automatically constructed from panoramic imagery captured at close intervals along the route. The routing information is used to create a variable speed video depicting the route. During playback of the video, the frame and field of view are dynamically modulated to highlight salient features along the route and connect them back to the map. A user interface is demonstrated to allow exploration of the combined map, video, and textual driving directions. We discuss the construction of the hybrid map and video interface. Finally, we report the results of a study that provides evidence of the effectiveness of such a system for route following.
