Public Profile

TaggPic Inc is an Analytics/Big Data firm developing geo-recognition technology that can analyze photos, recognize landmarks and ultimately determine the precise locations where the photos were captured, based solely on these visual features. With hundreds of millions of digital photos uploaded to the Web every day from around the world, the explosion of pixel data is creating the need for fast, hyper-accurate, and automatic tagging of massive collections of images. TaggPic technology is based solely on visual features, and does not require any metadata, such as GPS tags, manual tagging, or other location sensors, although it is capable of working with inputs from all three. The underlying algorithms of the system are able to determine the precise position of the camera viewpoint in a geo-referenced coordinate system, even if no prior data about the photo’s location is known. TaggPic then transforms static 2D photos into auto-tagged, geo-positioned, and intelligently connected platforms that TaggPic’s crowd-fueled computer vision technology then is able to recognize landmarks, buildings, and other objects in images without the need for GPS data or manual tagging.
