A Ranking Approach Based on Example Texts for Geographic Information Retrieval [chapter]

Esaú Villatoro-Tello, Manuel Montes-y-Gómez, Luis Villaseñor-Pineda
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper focuses on the problem of ranking documents for Geographic Information Retrieval.  ...  Experimental results indicated that our approach could improve the MAP of some sets of retrieved documents using only two example texts.  ...  Based on these facts, we designed a new GIR method that aims to improve the ranking of retrieved documents by considering information from some query-related example texts.  ...

Performance Oriented Query Processing In GEO Based Location Search Engines [article]

M. Umamaheswari, S. Sivasubramanian
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Geographic location search engines allow users to constrain and order search results in an intuitive manner by focusing a query on a particular geographic region.  ...  Geographic search engine query processing is different in that it requires a combination of text and spatial data processing techniques.  ...  This is done by using a text index structure called an inverted index to retrieve the IDs of pages containing the keywords, and then evaluating a term-based ranking function on these pages to determine  ...

A machine learning approach to determining tag relevance in geotagged Flickr imagery

Mark Hughes, Noel E. O'Connor, Gareth J. F. Jones
2012 2012 13th International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services  
To classify tag relevance, we propose a novel feature set based on statistical information available for each tag within a collection of geotagged images harvested from Flickr.  ...  We present a novel machine learning based approach to determining the semantic relevance of community contributed image annotations for the purposes of image retrieval.  ...  To measure the geographical distribution of a text tag, we extract a feature based on geographical variance.  ...

Depending on the DPDC approach result we predict overlap of the feature set for a document. Based on overlap and document correlation, the documents are ranked.  ...  Information Retrieval (IR) is a profound technique to find information that addresses the need of query. Processing of normal text is easier and information can be retrieved efficiently.  ...  We proposed a method based on DPDC approach for effective retrieval.  ...
