Abstract

With the amount of textual data available on the web, new methodologies of knowledge extraction domain are provided. Some original methods allow the users to combine different types of data in order to extract relevant information. In this context, we present the cornerstone of manipulations on textual documents and their preparation for extracting compatible spatial information with those contained in satellite images. The term footprint is defined and its extraction is performed. In this paper, we describe the general process and some experiments conducted in the XXX project, which aims to match the information coming from texts with those of satellite images.
