we cordially invite everybody interested to our next open GIScience colloquium talk
Semantic Signatures for Social Sensing in Smart Environments
Prof. Dr. Krzysztof Janowicz
Associate Professor for Geographic Information Science and Geoinformatics at the Geography Department of the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA
Time and date: Mon, July 3, 2.15 pm
Venue: INF 348, Room 015, Department of Geography, Heidelberg University
In this talk we will introduce the framework of semantic signatures in the context of social sensing and illustrate how its combination of deductive and inductive methods provides new insights into key questions of geographic information retrieval, reverse geocoding, place name disambiguation, similarity reasoning, and so forth. We will discuss these topics in the context of bottom-up, sensor-rich environments.
