Boško Simeunović (2009) Acquisition of photographs from Picasa Web Albums. EngD thesis.
This thesis demonstrates the possibility of capturing photos from the Picas Web Albums service. The result of the thesis is a working application developed in the Java programming language. The application utilizes special libraries to connect to the Picasa Web Albums service, and with these libraries we are able to extract photo data and thus save it to an appropriate database. A backup of this data is also created in XML format. The application enables us to capture geotagged photos belonging to a custom area of the earth's surface. The area is defined with two latitude and two longitude values. A simple graphical interface is provided to assist with the use of this application. To date we have not found any similar solutions to this type of problem, and although the application performs well in its current state, it is possible to develop further improvements and functionality to it.
