GikiP at GeoCLEF 2008: Joining GIR and QA forces for querying Wikipedia (2009)

Abstract This paper reports on the GikiP pilot that took place in 2008 in GeoCLEF. This pilot task requires a combination of methods from geographical information retrieval and question answering to answer queries to the Wikipedia. We start by the task description, providing details on topic choice and evaluation measures. Then we offer a brief motivation from several perspectives, and we present results in detail. A comparison of participants’ approaches is then presented, and the paper concludes with improvements for the next edition.
