A photo notification system i comprises one or more mobile terminals, a data communications network, and a photo sharing platform. The photo sharing platform is configured to compare a received reference image (6.1), associated with a first user, with one or more stored images associated with other users. The platform identifies an object or scene of interest in the reference image (6.2), and compares the identified object or scene of interest with objects or scenes of interest in the one or more stored images (6.3) to identify common content having an appearance change (6.5). In such case, a notification message is sent to the first user referencing or comprising the stored image(s) having the identified changed appearance (6.7).

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
