Visual Image Retrieval and Localization

VIRaL is also available from your mobile device: FindmyPhoto is an Android application that uses the VIRaL search engine to look for similar photos and provides all services that VIRaL does.

With FindmyPhoto, a photo query is sent to the VIRaL engine, and results are instantly displayed on your device. As a query, you may use either a photo from your collection, or a new picture you take with your camera.

FindmyPhotodoes not need GPS and can work even for photos you take indoors (e.g. in a museum), or in any place without network access.

In addition to what the web version of VIRaL offers, FindmyPhoto can actually store the retrieved information (location, tags, identified landmarks) as metadata in the photo itself!
