Tiivistelmä

We introduce a model for landmark highlighting for pedestrian route guidance services for mobile devices. The model determines which landmarks are the most attractive based on their properties in the current context of user's orientation and the location on the route and highlights these landmarks on the mobile map. The attractiveness of a landmark is based on its visual, structural and semantic properties which are used for calculating the total attractiveness of a single landmark. This model was evaluated with voluntary users conducted in laboratory environment. Test subjects were shown images of street intersections from where they selected the most attractive and prominent landmarks in the route's context. We then compared these results with the landmarks selected by the model. The results show that landmarks highlighted by the model were the same ones that were selected by the participants as most salient landmarks.
