Extraction of Spatio-Temporal Data about Historical Events from Text Documents
Track: Transactions in GI Science
Authors: Susanna Abraham
Often, we are faced with questions regarding past events and the answers are hidden in the historical text archives. The growing developments in Geographic and Temporal Information Retrieval techniques have given new ways to explore duch archives for spatio-temporal data. This work contributes to a better understanding of spatio-temporal information extraction. The extracted data is used as input for GIS studies of the German-Herero war of resistance 1904 in Namibia.
