Teaching and Learning Text Mining with Geographic Analysis in TDM Studio

Teaching and Learning Text Mining with Geographic Analysis in TDM Studio Online

Many places have the same name as other places—We can think, for example, of placenames like Springfield or London or Main Street which cover dozens (or hundreds?) or different locations. In this 1-hour workshop, we will use TDM Studio to explore the geographic distribution of placenames in different datasets. You will have the opportunity to create a dataset related to your research project. We will then plot the geocoded locations in the dataset on a map and discuss—Which ones does the geocoding algorithm get right What are the mistakes and what can we learn from these mistakes? No previous text mining or coding experience is needed for this workshop. We will also look briefly at a Python implementation of the geocoding algorithm—This will let us discuss other options and the pros and cons of different approaches to the task.
