This is achieved by randomly selecting toponyms from the Ordnance Survey 50K gazetteer to create search queries and thus gather document counts from various web sources for Great Britain. The same gazetteer(More)
An overview of PhD research into defining imprecise regions(e.g. "The Midlands" of Great Britain) using unstructured data sources found on the web. A literature review is undertaken and future experiments are suggested. Two preliminary experiments, one into geo-tagging, the other into geographic coverage on the web, are described.

The research explores how much of the meaning of a document could be represented using images by researching the ability of subjects to derive the search term that might have been used to return a set of images from an image(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present a high-level discussion based on ongoing research with the aim of providing support to educational practitioners based on real shareability and reuse of learning objects. Consequently, the discussion is centred around the need for a data-base driven architecture for VLEs that supports real reuse and sharing of(More)
