In this paper, we investigate the effectiveness of two distinct techniques (Special Moment Approach and Spatial Frequency Approach) for reviewing the lifelogs, which were collected using a wearable camera and a bracelet, simultaneously for two days. Special moment approach is a technique for extracting episodic events. Spatial frequency approach is a technique for associating visual with temporal and location information. Heat map is applied as the spatial data for expressing frequency awareness. Based on this, the participants were asked to fill in two post-study questionnaires for evaluating the effectiveness of those two techniques and their combination. The preliminary result showed the positive potential of exploring individual lifelogs using our approaches.
