tool: GeoParser

GeoParser is a text analysis tool that may be used to identify, tag and (where appropriate) disambiguate references to geographic location in a text resource. The tool uses Natural Language Processing to analyse the composition of a resource and identifying words that match its geographic database. The approach is useful for processing ambiguous references, such as names that may have one of several locations (e.g. Belfast in Ireland, New Zealand and Canada) and distinguishing names that may be confused with other action (e.g. Reading in Berkshire and reading as an activity). GeoParser may be used with GeoCrossWalk to tag a place name with full geographical coordinates (e.g. an OS National Grid Reference).

tool: Concordance

A software tool for performing concordance – the analysis of a set of words within its immediate context - on a body of text. The tool performs full concordance, reading and analysing each and every word in a text. It was initially written for the analysis of English texts, but has since been extended to cater for other Western languages. Limited support is also provided for text in East Asian scripts, such as Chinese and Korean.
