Search words and geography


In this paper, we present a preliminary study of geographic query words, which users' tend to re-use. The categories of the words demonstrate that geographically related words take up the largest proportion of all repeated words. These geo-words refer to a range of spatial areas. In addition, it was found that different geo-word types are re-used in different ways by users.
