Perspectives on semantics of the place from online resources



We present a methodology for extraction of semantic indexes related to a given geo-referenced place. These lists of words correspond to the concepts that should be semantically related to that place, according
to a number of perspectives. Each \emph{perspective} is provided by a different online resource, namely, Flickr, Wikipedia or open web search (using Yahoo! search engine). We describe the process by which those lists are obtained, present experimental results and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the methodology and of each perspective.
