Towards a Search System for the Web Exploiting Spatial Data of a Web Document
In this paper, we describe our work in progress in the scope of information retrieval exploiting the spatial data extracted from web documents. We discuss problems of a search for web documents by geographic distance, where the geographic distance of a document is determined automatically using information extraction methods. We present here our approach of building a distributed search system, which deals with several problems of this area. Search by geographic distance is useful, for example if we are looking for the nearest restaurant, hotel or any other business near our location (reference point). Almost every company today presents its business on the Internet sharing business information along with contact information.
