Camera orientation estimation in natural scenes may be formulated as an alignment of the photograph with the rendered terrain. In this talk, we consider using semantic segments jointly with edges as features for matching and show, that they complement each other. We show that this leads to improved robustness over competitive methods and illustrate, that our approach delivers state-of-the-art results. Furthermore, we introduce a novel application for automatic creation of immersive presentations of photographs aligned with the terrain model. Using our method, the user can re-visit the places captured during the hike inside virtual reality and share this experience with others.
