Exploiting geographic references of documents in a geographical information retrieval system using an ontology-based index

Nieves R. Brisaboa, Miguel R. Luaces, Ángeles S. Places, Diego Seco
2010 Geoinformatica  
First, we propose a new index structure that combines an inverted index and a spatial index based on an ontology of geographic space.  ...  Lately, a new research eld called Geographic Information Retrieval has appeared from the intersection of these two elds.  ...  Even though it is very common that textual and geographic information occur together in information systems, the geographic references of documents are rarely used in information retrieval systems.  ...

Ontology-Based Query Construction for GeoCLEF [chapter]

Rui Wang, Günter Neumann
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes experiments with geographical information retrieval (GIR). Being different from the traditional information IR, we focus more on the query expansion instead of document ranking.  ...  We parse each topic into the event part and the geographic part and use different ontologies to expand both parts respectively. The results show promising results of our strategy for this task.  ...  Introduction The goal of geographic information retrieval (GIR) is to retrieve documents for topics with a geographic specification [2] .  ...

A Semantic Approach to Describe Geospatial Resources [chapter]

Sidney Roberto de Sousa
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Geographic information systems (GIS) are increasingly using geospatial data from the Web to produce geographic information.  ...  This approach is based on semantic annotations that use geographic metadata and ontologies to describe heterogeneous geospatial data.  ...  The choice of the ontology term is done by a mechanism that queries the ontology base for URI of terms; -Ontology base: The ontology base is composed by geospatial and agricultural ontologies.  ...
