Gazetteer matching for natural features in Switzerland


Acheson, Elise; Villette, Julia; Volpi, Michele; Purves, Ross S (2017). Gazetteer matching for natural features in Switzerland. In: GIR'17 11th Workshop on Geographic Information Retrieval, Heidelberg (Deutschland), 30 November 2017 - 1 December 2017, online.

Abstract

We investigate gazetteer matching between natural features in Switzerland. We produce a gold standard dataset for a subset of features from 8 natural feature types in GeoNames aligned with their corresponding match(es) in SwissNames3D, an authoritative gazetteer. Based on this dataset, we comment on feature type alignments between the two resources and on type-specific differences to take into consideration for the matching task. We present preliminary results of rule-based matching and plans for future work.
