Mapping locations in texts

Chiwuike Anyiam-Osigwe


Supervised by Chris B Jones; Moderated by George Theodorakopoulos

The aim of these project is to produce a web application that allows the user to map the places mentioned in texts. The system will use named entity recognition (NER) and geocoding software such as that provided by SpaCy and the GeoPy libraries respectively to identify and geocode (generate the coordinates for) locations mentioned in a text provided by the user. The locations will then be plotted on a map (using a background map such as that of OpenStreetMap).
