Bo Yan's blog
Two full papers have been accepted for oral presentation at the GIScience conference this year!
Our short paper Visualizing The Semantic Similarity of Geographic Features submitted by Gengchen Mai, Krzysztof Janowicz, Sathya Prasad, and Bo Yan has been accepted for oral presentation at AGILE this year.
We have presented our Place2Vec paper at this year's ACM Sigspatial conference and have attracted a lot of attention. In order to promote future research in place type similarity measurements, we have published the ground truth data we collected using Amazon Mechanical Turk. You can download the data from this repository: https://github.com/BoYanSTKO/place2vec .
