Out of scope: n/a
Example story: As a researcher, I'd like to see the geographic context of my search results, and be able to pivot, extend or refine a search with a single click, in order to better assess found resources, find related resources, and filter or expand search results to broaden or narrow a search on the fly.
A. <place> searches can be done w/ spatial search (Metacarta, now owned by Nokia may have a patent in this space).
B. Search results with spatial data can be shown on a map with points. (works about this place, published in this place, by authors born in this place)
- Catalog records
- what geo data??
- Inclusion of geographic data
- .. needs refinement ...
- Place names? Pablo has done experiments and is getting about 75% hit rates in recognition of geographic names in DBpedia (1:1 mappings). Darren suggests that we need highly relevant, disambiguated results for users to be able to attend to them
- linking via place to further information -- e.g., people, but heavily weighted to people in the public eye (some with VIAF entries). Multi-step inclusion shows the value of linked data but belongs in the next cluster as leveraging the linked data graph
- Other demonstrations to leverage other authorities (e.g., Getty https://www.getty.edu/research/tools/vocabularies/tgn/index.html)? Because a lot of people use the Getty it becomes a way to link to other things
Who will do what?
