We propose a framework to interpret deep convolutional models for visual place classification. Given a deep place classification model, our proposed method produces visual explanations and saliency maps that reveal the understanding of images by the model. To evaluate the interpretability, t-SNE algorithm is used for mapping and visualization of...
