Embodiments of the present invention relate to systems, methods and computer storage media for associating a known geographic location with a known identity. Feature matching, of at least two images, is performed in at least two iterations. The iterations are based on an orientation of feature vectors associated with points of interest in each image. A geometric model is applied to the matched points of interest to improve the matched pairs. Two images are identified as being related. As a result, the known geographic location is associated with the known identity. Additional embodiments include augmenting feature vectors with a coordinate location of a related point of interest based on a geometric model. Further, an exemplary embodiment includes an additional matching iteration based on the augmented feature vectors. In an exemplary embodiment, the feature matching utilizes a Scale-Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT).
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
