This paper describes and analyzes the results of our experiments in Geographical Information Retrieval (GIR) in the context of our participation in the CLEF 2007 GeoCLEF Monolingual English task.
Our system uses Linguistic and Geographical Analysis to process topics and document collections. Geographical Document Retrieval is performed with Terrier and Geographical Knowledge Bases.
Our experiments show that Geographical Knowledge Bases can be used to improve the retrieval results of the Terrier state-of-the-art IR system by filtering out non geographically relevant documents.
