Density based co-location pattern discovery

Xiangye Xiao, Xing Xie, Qiong Luo, Wei-Ying Ma
2008 Proceedings of the 16th ACM SIGSPATIAL international conference on Advances in geographic information systems - GIS '08  
For example, if two categories of businesses often locate together, they might be identified as a co-location pattern; if several biologic species frequently live in nearby places, they might be a co-location  ...  Co-location pattern discovery is to find classes of spatial objects that are frequently located together.  ...  Co-located queries discovered from geographic search logs can help query suggestion, location recommendation, and targeted local advertising.  ...

Vanity fair

Rosie Jones, Ravi Kumar, Bo Pang, Andrew Tomkins
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
A recently proposed approach to address privacy concerns in storing web search querylogs is bundling logs of multiple users together.  ...  We begin by quantifying users' propensity to issue own-name vanity queries and geographically revealing queries.  ...  We hope to discover interesting related words by analyzing co-occurrence patterns in these pseudo-documents.  ...

Recommending interesting activity-related local entities

Jie Tang, Ryen W. White, Peter Bailey
2011 Proceedings of the 34th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in Information - SIGIR '11  
When searching for entities with a strong local character (e.g., a museum), people may also be interested in discovering proximal activity-related entities (e.g., a café).  ...  Geographical proximity is a necessary, but not sufficient, qualifier for recommending other entities such that they are related in a useful manner (e.g., interest in a fish market does not imply interest  ...  [6] , similarly motivated about local relatedness, observed behavior in geographic (local map vertical) search logs and derived mechanisms to identify co-located queries at different geographic region  ...

Analysis of geographic queries in a search engine log

Qingqing Gan, Josh Attenberg, Alexander Markowetz, Torsten Suel
2008 Proceedings of the first international workshop on Location and the web - LOCWEB '08  
Search engines can often return better results to users by analyzing features such as user location or geographic terms in web pages and user queries.  ...  This paper studies geographic search queries, i.e., text queries such as "hotel new york" that employ geographical terms in an attempt to restrict results to a particular region or location.  ...  After manual classification, we discovered ¾ queries with geographic intent out of queries in the sample.  ...

Using geo-spatial session tagging for smart multicast session discovery

Piyush Harsh, Richard Newman
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 ACM symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '09  
They also provide necessary design changes and give data models and data structures to support seamless location sensitive session retrieval as part of search query results to be furnished to the end user  ...  In this paper authors propose to leverage mDNS architecture by enabling multicast sessions to be tagged using geographical and spatial information based on the channel contents or service provider location  ...  Once the search query reaches the appropriate MSD server, if search-perimeter and coordinates are specified, it locates the corresponding grid position in the sparse matrix structure and descends down  ...

Fancy a Drink in Canary Wharf?: A User Study on Location-Based Mobile Search [chapter]

Alia Amin, Sian Townsend, Jacco van Ossenbruggen, Lynda Hardman
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This method enables us to capture users' explicit behavior (query made), their implicit intention (motivation behind search) and the context (spatial, temporal, and social) in which the search was carried  ...  We also found that most location-based searches are conducted while in the presence of others.  ...  In a generic search, such as searching for a movie trailer or a book, geographical aspects are irrelevant. This is not the case for location-based searches.  ...
