A Digital GeoLibrary: Integrating Keywords And Place Names [chapter]

Mathew Weaver, Lois Delcambre, Leonard Shapiro, Jason Brewster, Afrem Gutema, Timothy Tolle
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have developed and implemented a digital library that supports -but does not requiregeoreferenceable documents (i.e., documents with reference to geography through the use of a textual place name).  ...  A digital library typically includes a set of keywords (or subject terms) for each document in its collection(s).  ...  We also thank Dale Guenther of the USDA Forest Service for his help in gathering and understanding several GIS datasets.  ...

A Metadata Schema for Geospatial Resource Discovery Use Cases

Darren Hardy, Kim Durante
2014 Code4Lib Journal  
Finally, we discuss a Solr implementation of the schema using a "geo" extension to MODS.  ...  We introduce a metadata schema that focuses on GIS discovery use cases for patrons in a research library setting.  ...  Goodchild et al. (1999) define a geolibrary as “a digital library filled with geoinformation and for which the primary search mechanism is place.”  ...

A "geolibrary" is defined as a digital library consisting of "geoinformation," or material that can be accessed by place (National Research Council 1999) .  ...  The service will return the place name for the footprint. Alternatively, the resource may have a textual place name.  ...  As services and enabled software proliferate, it will be easier to integrate these KOSs into digital libraries.  ...

The Map Library's Emerging Role in the Dissemination of Cartographic Information on the Internet

Patrick McGlamery, Robert G. Cromley
2001 Cartographic Perspectives  
A geo-library is a digital library filled with geo-information-information associated with a distinct area or footprint on the Earth's surfaceand for which the primary search mechanism is place.  ...  Each shape file only contained in its attribute table a name field and appropriate key field(s).  ...

A Semantic Enhanced Model for effective Spatial Information Retrieval [article]

Adeyinka K. Akanbi, Olusanya Y. Agunbiade, Sadiq Kuti, Olumuyiwa J. Dehinbo
2014 arXiv   pre-print
A lot of information on the web is geographically referenced.  ...  In particular, an integrated model that uses specific domain information extraction to improve the searching and retrieval of ranked spatial search results.  ...  A major shortcoming of these approaches is that they cannot recognize alternative names for the same place, whether they are literarily names or historical variants.  ...

Metadata for Geographic Information

Paula Ahonen-Rainio
2006 Journal of Map & Geography Libraries  
Metadata for digital maps is closely related to the metadata elements for conventional maps and can be enhanced by providing a sample map with the data.  ...  Users of geographic data may not be able to afford to purchase and implement a dataset that does not finally meet their needs.  ...  Search systems using these latter criteria have been developed in digital geolibraries.  ...

Towards evidence-based, GIS-driven national spatial health information infrastructure and surveillance services in the United Kingdom

Maged N Kamel Boulos
2004 International Journal of Health Geographics  
GIS have much more to offer than the obvious digital cartography (map) functions.  ...  The term "Geographic Information Systems" (GIS) has been added to MeSH in 2003, a step reflecting the importance and growing use of GIS in health and healthcare research and practices.  ...  The success of a distributed geolibrary is largely dependent on the ability to integrate information available about a place.  ...

INVISIP: Usage of Information Visualization Techniques to Access Geospatial Data Archives [chapter]

Stefan Göbel, Jörg Haist, Harald Reiterer, Frank Müller
Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Complex application examples or scenarios such as site planning need a lot of information, especially spatially referenced data 1 in order to find a best place for a new building or an industrial area  ...  This paper describes INVISIP and introduces GeoCrystal and SuperTable as new information visualization techniques to support users in this process.  ...  A magnifying-glass initiates a search mode offering different easy (keyword search, spatial search by geographic names) and complex (based on metadata formats) search forms for casual and advanced users  ...

MapSearch: a protocol and prototype application to find maps

Judith Gelernter
Maps in physical and digital collections often are organized by region. Multi-dimensional manual indexing is time-consuming and so many maps are not indexed.  ...  Even geographers need ways to find what they need among the thousands of maps buried in map libraries and in journal articles. It is not enough to provide search by region and keyword.  ...  A gazetteer is a directory of place names, coordinates, and how places relate to one another hierarchically.  ...
