Handling implicit geographic evidence for geographic ir

Nuno Cardoso, Mário J. Silva, Diana Santos
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
In this paper, we analyze the amount of implicit and explicit geographic evidence in newspaper documents, and measure its impact on geographic information retrieval by evaluating the performance of a retrieval  ...  However, some non-geographic names such as companies, monuments or sport events, may also provide indirect relevant evidence that can significantly contribute to the assignment of geographic scopes to  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank David Cruz and Sebastiano Vigna for modifying MG4J according to the experiment requirements, and Patrícia Sousa for performing the experiments.  ...

Experiments with Geographic Evidence Extracted from Documents [chapter]

Nuno Cardoso, Patrícia Sousa, Mário J. Silva
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For the 2008 participation at GeoCLEF, we focused on improving the extraction of geographic signatures from documents and optimising their use for GIR.  ...  The results show that the detection of explicit geographic named entities for including their terms in a tuned weighted index field significantly improves retrieval performance when compared to classic  ...  For future work, we plan to improve REMBRANDT's strategy for capturing implicit geographic evidence.  ...
