Abstract—The many sightseeing photos are posted in Social Network Service (SNS). Any interested objects for tourists are shown up in the posted photos. Therefore, it is considered that the characteristics of visit spot can be discovered by analyzing the SNS’s photos. By the way, Microsoft started the cloud service of an image analysis based on Artificial Intelligence technology. The Computer Vision API in this cloud service makes image segmentation and object labeling automatically possible for SNS’s photos. Therefore, it is considered that it is possible to detect the characteristics of visit spot as label information by analyzing statistically generated labels based on Computer Vision API. In this paper, an analysis method of the generated tags based on Computer Vision API is studied on. Concretely, we propose a calculation method of the degree of interest for the generated tags, and an analysis method of interest object in each region based on both the tag’s interest degree and taking location information of SNS’s photos.
