Since the war in Ukraine news media often try to geolocate the place where a video or picture was taken by looking at buildings or treelines present in the imagery.
Both Russians and Ukranians often blur treelines or other landmarks when they film their positions on the battlefield. This is to help prevent geolocation.
I understand that a building like a church could easily be geolocated. But how is geolocation using more mundane objects like treelines done? Do they use Google maps in combination with AI?
