Abstract

In this paper we provide some analysis of data fusion techniques employed at GeoCLEF 2008 to merge textual and geographic relevance. These methods are compared to our own experiments, where using our GIR system, Forostar, we show that an aggressive filter-based data fusion method can outperform a more sophisticated penalisation method.
