Towards Fuzzy Spatial Reasoning in Geographic IR Systems

Steven Schockaert, Martine De Cock, Etienne E. Kerre
2006 Workshop on Geographic Information Retrieval  
Vague spatial information such as "x is located at walking distance of y" is abundant on the web. In this contribution, we propose a framework to represent such spatial information, and show how new spatial relations may be deduced. Furthermore, we illustrate how this framework can be useful to increase the coverage of focused spatial information retrieval systems.
