Users refer to online content such as travel blogs, travel videos, etc. for inspiration regarding places to visit and things to do. However, such content often does not include place annotations. Due to this, the user needs to perform multiple web searches to identify points referred to in the content. This disclosure describes techniques to provide users with information based on analyzing an image. The user can provide an input image or video, which is analyzed to recognize depicted objects or places. Information regarding the identified objects, e.g., location, knowledge base information, additional images of the object, place suggestions based on the object, is identified via map applications, video applications, knowledge bases, etc. A user interface is provided that enables the user to view the information and store it in their personal collection, e.g., a collection of points of interest. When the user engages in trip planning, points of interest from the collection are surfaced to the user.
