Interpreting Place Descriptions for Navigation Services

10131.WuYunhui.ExtAbstract.2730.pdf (0.1 MB)


We see a need for research bringing spatial intelligence into the fundamental mechanisms of parsing and interpreting place descriptions. An intelligent navigation service will have capabilities to imitate human route communication behavior (Winter and Wu, 2009), thus, at least the capabilities to make sense of place descriptions.
