Abstract

The annotation of georeferenced information objects is related to the annotation of the content of the containing spatial regions. Not all spatial features contained in the regions, however, present characteristic attributes of the region described. In this paper, we present a method designed to select prominent spatial features in a region in order to improve the annotation of the region. The method is demonstrated on an artificial dataset and preliminary results show that the method results in a reduction of the number of terms typically describing a region which is statistically significant.

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.
