Extracting Semantics of Places from User Generated Content [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Next generation Geographic Information Systems should support place-based searches. The notion of place is a vague concept that strictly relates to human conceptualization of space. We regard places as cognitive regions affording activity opportunities and present a computational workflow to populate the model with information from User Generated Content available on the Web. An algorithmic realization is provided that relies on the Resource Description Framework along with a real example derived by an implementation of the workflow that relies on OpenStreetMap and TripAdvisor data.
