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.
