Towards mapping of alpine route descriptions


Piotrowski, M; Läubli, S; Volk, M (2010). Towards mapping of alpine route descriptions. In: GIR'10: 6th Workshop on Geographic Information Retrieval, Zurich, Switzerland, 18 February 2010 - 19 February 2010, 15-16.

Abstract

We describe a corpus of historic mountaineering accounts and ongoing work on geocoding toponyms and route descriptions in These accounts. Mountaineering accounts contain a wealth of geographic information but its extraction for purposes of geographic Information retrieval poses specific challenges, in particular the distinction between toponyms pertinent to route descriptions and those mentioned in descriptions of panoramas. We describe some preliminary considerations for natural language cues to distinguish between these two types of occurrences.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
