Matching geo-spatial information by qualitative spatial relations

Rami Al-Salman, Frank Dylla, Paolo Fogliaroni
2012 Proceedings of the 1st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Crowdsourced and Volunteered Geographic Information - GEOCROWD '12  
Current Geographic Information Systems (GISs) do not adequately allow users to query spatial databases by means of qualitative terms like left, near ,or above.  ...  Hence, we propose a matching framework that enables users to formulate configurations in a spatial query in an intuitive and qualitative manner.  ...  For example, indexing methods like R*Tree [1] could be very useful. 12, November 6, 2012.
