Abstract

We detail our methods for generating and applying co-occurrence models for the purpose of placename disambiguation. We explain in detail our use of co-occurrence models for placename disambiguation using a model generated from Wikipedia. The presented system is split into two stages: a batch text & geographic indexer and a real time query engine. Four alternative query constructions and six methods of generating a geographic index are compared. The paper concludes with a full description of future work and ways in which the system could be optimised.
