Challenges and resources for evaluating geographical IR

Bruno Martins, Mário J. Silva, Marcirio Silveira Chaves
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 workshop on Geographic information retrieval - GIR '05  
It presents existing resources for evaluating the different components, together with a review on previous results in the area.  ...  This paper discusses evaluation of Geo-IR systems, arguing for a separate study of the different algorithmic components involved.  ...  In the future, we plan on adding information from other domains (i.e. companies or Internet domains with a known geographical context), as this can be useful in inferring geo-scopes for Web resources.  ...

On the evaluation of Geographic Information Retrieval systems

Damien Palacio, Guillaume Cabanac, Christian Sallaberry, Gilles Hubert
2010 International Journal on Digital Libraries  
These three dimensions were referred to as parts of 'geographic information.' In the literature, search engines handling those dimensions are called 'Geographic Information Retrieval (GIR) systems.'  ...  Search engines for Digital Libraries allow users to retrieve documents according to their contents. They process documents without differentiating the manifold aspects of information.  ...  Acknowledgements We are indebted to Valérie Bougeant, Jean-Paul Cabanac, Christian Chevalier, Benoît Chirle, Firas Damak, Agnès Itier, Rudy Kapler, Anaïs Lefeuvre, Nicolas Noullet, and Camille Raymond for  ...
