Abstract

Disclosed are a system and method to create a more robust and full account of a user’s journey or trip by using triggers to obtain other public domain information about a region during a specified point in time. The story creation system identifies related media files created by other users, and then automatically inserts that content into a user’s travel story.

System and Method for Travel Story Creation and Augmentation from User Generated Content

While traveling, users capture different photographs to create a travel story; however, information is apt to be missing when using existing methods of travel story creation. For example, when multiple people capture photographs where the user is present, there may be a case where the user is present in someone else's photograph. In addition, different people can share social networking comments about a place where the user is present. This information is likely to be missing when using the existing methods of travel story creation.

A mechanism is needed by which, while creating travel story, the system also gathers additional information from content generated by other people in the public domain.

The novel and non-obvious system and method create a more robust and full account of a user's journey or trip by using triggers to obtain other public domain information about a region during a specified point in time.

The components and process for implementing the system and method for inclusive travel story creation follow:


1. Define the desired path and scope of a story


A. May be designated by a period of time


B. May be designated by multiple geographical points (e.g., start and end)

C. User may also provide filters to ignore or focus on some content (via keyword or other methods)

2. Obtain imagery and other content captured by the user within the defined boundaries

A. May obtain images, comments or other media captured during a specified time frame by looking at Exchangeable Image File (EXIF) data or social media tagging

B. May obtain images or other media captured within geographical boundaries by looking at EXIF data or social media tagging

3. Obtain imagery, comments and other media from the public domain within defined boundaries

A. Using same information as Step 2, obtain public domain content within the geographical and time constraints of the desired story

B. May also use imag...
