The creation of temporal of panoramic visualization (timescapes) of historic landmarks given the available photos on the Internet is a challenging problem. Dealing with hundreds of thousands of modern and historic photos captured under varying conditions not only has the typical image registration problems, but suffers greatly from multisensor, multitemporal, and multispatial capturing attributes. As well, imprecise lenses and digitization techniques used to generate digital versions of historic images only increases the difficulty of the registration problem An automated processing of collected photos of many landmarks around the world is presented in this paper and offers a novel view of these registered images using the timescapes concept of merging historical and location information into a single scope Registering both historic and modern photos in an accurate and precise manner allows an opportunity to support the cultural heritage preservations of such landmarks. This paper presents a timescape display through registered images of landmarks in a single attractive temporal and spatial panoramic view.
