This paper presents an approach for modeling location-based profiles of social image media based on tagging information and collaborative geo-reference annotations. We utilize pattern mining techniques for obtaining sets of tags that are specific for the specified point, landmark, or region of interest. Next, we show how these candidate patterns can be presented and visualized for interactive exploration using a combination of general pattern mining visualizations and views specialized on geo-referenced tagging data. We present a case study using publicly available data from the Flickr photo sharing application.
