ABSTRACT: User-generated data represents an important resource for improving the quality and scope of existing geospatial datasets. Examples include road network datasets, Point-of-Interest data and more exotic information such as user relevance. This talk gives on overview of techniques that allow us to exploit various forms of existing datasets generated by your typical Web user and the ever increasing number of Web and mobile applications.
