What is Geoparser?

The GeoParser demonstrator is a tool that allows users to upload web pages, text files, metadata records, xml etc., which can then be parsed for geographical names. These are then checked against GeoCrossWalk to obtain explicit geographical coordinates for the location referred to , in order to “geo-tag” the uploaded document. In other words, it demonstrates a tool that would be key to geo-enabling metadata, resources and services within a JISC Information Environment (link).
