Augmenting Aerial Earth Maps with Dynamic Information (Video)

Ed. note: "Making Cities Alive: Augmenting Aerial Earth Maps with Dynamic Information" is a video by Kihwan Kim, Sangmin Oh, Jeonggyu Lee and Irfan Essa from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The authors' description: "We introduce methods for augmenting aerial visualizations of Earth (from tools such as Google Earth or Microsoft Virtual Earth) with dynamic information obtained from videos. Our goal is to make Augmented Earth Maps that visualize the live broadcast of dynamic sceneries within a city. We propose different approaches to analyze videos of pedestrians and cars, under differing conditions and then augment Aerial Earth Maps (AEMs) with live and dynamic information. We also analyze natural phenomenon (clouds) and project information from these to the AEMs to add the visual reality."

A paper on the subject is also available.
