Application: Method and apparatus for aggregating and presenting data associated with geographic locations (Patent ID: US20230350925A1)

Qualcomm Inc. has filed a patent related to systems and methods for aggregating and presenting data on geographic locations. The platform collects geotag data on locations and associated features to build a regional profile, combining data like user ratings to generate recommendations for mobile device users based on their location within the region. The recommendations can be displayed through dynamic menus, incorporating user preferences and region-specific terms analyzed from audio data.

The patent claims detail a method for operating a mobile device to display recommendations based on regional profiles of geographic regions, allowing users to select categories and view recommended points of interest. The recommendations are influenced by user ratings and can include user-uploaded media content like audio data captured at the selected point of interest. The mobile device can also determine the current location of the user and display recommendations based on factors like the time of day or the recency of user ratings. Additionally, the patent includes claims for a mobile device with processors configured to display recommendations, obtain user selections, and provide user-uploaded media content associated with selected points of interest, enhancing the user experience with personalized and location-specific recommendations.
