Forget the shortest route across a city; new algorithm finds the most beautiful! If you prefer beautiful routes over short ones, your GPS won't help you. But Yahoo researchers have come up with an approach that could change that. Yahoo has collaborated with a site called UrbanGems, along with various crowdsourcing projects, to come up with a way to find the most scenic routes from point A to point B. I can't wait for this to be implemented!
This is such a wonderful idea! Sure sometimes getting from one place to another is my main focus, but sometimes you really just want to unwind and wander a bit and this sounds perfect for that!
I just get sick of walking down the same streets, I'd love to switch it up with some scenic walks!
I feel like it'd take a long time to develop it in this way, but wouldn't it be awesome if we could expand this to include amazing hiking trails and scenic outlooks?
this looks absolutely fantastic - any idea for when they'll be implementing this?
This will be so cool - sometimes I wanna go from point A to b but have hours to do it--this is the perfect time killer
