Tasks in the Image viewer

Create a poll

Who is the person in this image?

  • Can create this kind of polls automatically for images that contain people but they are not identified. How will we know there are people? Facial recognition can be used. Without that, images identifies as portraits. Identifying portraits can also be automatic.
  • Can also be user-submitted (higher priority, notification, connect with the responder)
  • Where are the polls presented?
    • In the front page
    • In the user's feed for topics that are in her radar (many missing parts before that)

Where was this photo taken?

  • Ask users to geolocate. Geolocation is not promoted otherwise.


  • Create an outline for the building facade to project onto a 3D model
  • The map component suggests a match in OSM based on name and/or location and draws it on the map. I need to confirm to save it in OSM.

Sources or Newspapers section

  • Source with the source
  • The UI could be a viewer that automatically records the source when the user adds a fact

Federated sources
