A Language Independent Approach for Aligning Subject Heading Systems with Geographic Ontologies

Nuno Freire, José Luis Borbinha, Pável Calado
2011 International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications  
Our approach was evaluated on a subset of the Library of Congress Subject Headings, achieving an F 1 score of 93%.  ...  Our approach first recognizes the place names in the subject headings using entity recognition techniques and follows with the resolution of the place names in a target geographic ontology.  ...  We also expect that, the outcome of this work can be used to automatically establish links between subject headings systems in different languages, such as the work carried out in the MACS project 3 and  ...
