Geographic Information Retrieval and the World Wide Web: A Match Made in Electronic Space

David Johnson, Myke Gluck
1997 Cartographic Perspectives  
A retrieval system has seven elements: retrieval models, indexing, match and retrieval, relevance, order, query languages and query specification.  ...  The goal of information retrieval is to match the user's needs to the information that is in the system. Retrieval of geographic information is a combination of both information and data retrieval.  ...  a retrieval system for information.  ...

2022 Intelligent Automation and Soft Computing  
For users, migrating from one NLIDB to another is a difficult problem. To solve this problem, NLIDB needs to be standardized so that novice users can easily enter queries in their native language.  ...  However, each system provides a different interface for new users, so beginners can use different interactive modes to enter keyword-based queries.  ...  First, the user inputs a query to NLIDB in natural language, and then converts it to SQL. Then retrieve the required information from the database and display it on the interface.  ...

Vineet Bansal, Chen Zhang, Joyce Y. Chai, Rong Jin
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this report, we describe our studies with cross language and interactive image retrieval in ImageCLEF 2004.  ...  For interactive image retrieval, we investigated the potential use of user relevance feedback (URF), which was designed to address the mismatch problem between user queries and system descriptions.  ...  (a) Standard Interface (b) Interface with URF Unfortunately, after three users, we found some inconsistency in the system, so we had to discard the results from those three users.  ...

A translating computer interface for a network of heterogeneous interactive information retrieval systems

Richard S. Marcus
1973 Proceedings of the 1973 meeting on Programming languages and information retrieval - SIGPLAN '73  
The need for a network of heterogeneous interactive bibliographic information retrieval systems is projected from the facts of wide acceptance and growing demand for these systems and the limitations of  ...  For maximum efficiency users connected to each node --there might be several dozen or more online users at any one time --would make requests in a common retrieval language.  ...  The features of this interface, taken together, also provide a virtual retrieval system, which is what Uc, a user engaging the network from the common node in Fig. i , sees.  ...

A Multimedia Digital Library System Based on MPEG-7 and XQuery [chapter]

Mann-Ho Lee, Ji-Hoon Kang, Sung Hyon Myaeng, Soon Joo Hyun, Jeong-Mok Yoo, Eun-Jung Ko, Jae-Won Jang, Jae-Hyoung Lim
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since MPEG-7 is defined by XML schema, XQuery is a natural choice as a query language. By adopting the standards, MPEG-7 and XQuery, our system has benefited for interoperability.  ...  First, any MPEG-7 metadata instance can be accommodated into the system with no additional effort. Second, any system that can generate a query in XQuery can retrieve necessary information.  ...  Besides we believe that the use of both a standard metadata and a standard query language would be essential for interoperability among multimedia digital library systems.  ...

Information Retrieval using Natural Language Interfaces

M. Sreenivasulu
2014 International Journal of Computer Applications  
So, there is a need for non-expert user to query relational databases in their natural language such as English.  ...  In this paper, we propose s Natural language Interfaces to Relational Databases (NLIRDB) to access the data in easier manner. The end user can submit the request in natural language.  ...  Natural language interfaces The natural language interface to a database system is designed to be the most comfortable and user friendly interface for the end user of a database system[1][2][3].  ...

UCLIR: a Multilingual Information Retrieval Tool

Ahmed Abdelalí, James Cowie, David Farwell, William Ogden
2004 Inteligencia Artificial  
In this paper the Unicode Cross-Language Information Retrieval system (UCLIR) is described. UCLIR accepts a query in one language and then retrieves relevant documents in any of several languages.  ...  The core process involves a suite of technologies including machine translation and standard monolingual information retrieval.  ...  The false drop ratio in this case is only 2.32%. The combined performance figures for this system indicate a very low percentage chance of error in using this cross-language retrieval system.  ...
