mobile image and file system

This is a file and information organization system, automatically personalized from mobile images. As images are uploaded, a 3D model of the user's city becomes intertwined with personal images, evolving into a personalized object that represents the user's authentic experience. This system is called Pictopia. It is an "operating system" on which information, files and applications can be located. The user interface is designed to navigate, store and retrieve files on the 3D object. Pictopia was funded by City University staff research grant in 2004. see pictopia at acm multimedia 2004
