A content tagging and management capability is provided for enabling automatic tagging of content and management of tagged content. A method includes receiving content including an object, and automatically associating an information structure with the object included within the content to form thereby tagged content. The content may be received locally at a content capture device, and the information structure may be automatically associated with the object by the content capture device. The automatic tagging may be performed at the content capture device when the content is captured by the content capture device. The content may be received at a computer, and the information structure may be automatically associated with the object by the computer. The information structure may be available locally or retrieved from one or more remote devices.
1. A method, comprising:
using a processor for:
receiving content comprising a depiction of an object;
receiving data of at least one sensor associated with the object, the data comprising object information associated with the object and position information indicative of a position of the object;
populating an information structure with at least a portion of the object information associated with the object; and
automatically associating the information structure with the depiction of the object, to form thereby tagged content, based on association of the information structure with a content tag for the object and based on association of the content tag for the object with the depiction of the object based on the position information, wherein the content tag is configured such that selection of the content tag enables access to the information structure.
