links in online scientific and other academic articles fail to lead to

This project aims to digitise
the 86 volumes of the Survey of English Place-Names, a county by
county survey started in 1922 by the specialists of the English
Place-Name Society (EPNS). Our role is to convert the semi-structured
text into a full structured resource from which a historical gazetteer
is derived for use with the Edinburgh Geoparser as embedded
in Unlock Text.A
browsable view of the gazetteer can be found at
The goal of SYNC3 is to create a framework for
structuring, rendering more accessible and enabling collaborative
creation of the extensive user-provided content that is located in
personal blogs and refers to running news issues. Funded by the
European Union's 7th Framework Programme: Information and
Communication Technologies (ICT).
Combining Shallow Semantics and
Domain Knowledge: the project builds on existing techniques for
information extraction (IE) in order to develop and implement improved
methods for extracting semantic content from text.
