LENS: Locate & Explore Nice Spots

LENS is a mobile recommender for Android to help photographers to find nice spots. A server application aggregates similar Flickr pictures into spots and compares them with the tags in the profile of the users. Features like a messaging system, navigation, bookmarking, social sharing and saving spots into the the calendar create a good mobile experience.

LENS was developed together with Frederic Kerber, Pascal Lessel, and Michael Mauderer. It was part of the seminar Mobile Recommender Systems at Saarland University during the winter term 2011/2012. The project was supervised by Sven Gehring.
