Abstract

Verbal indoor route descriptions contain human spatial knowledge that this paper aims to represent formally for further analysis and question-answering. Available tools – route graphs for route descriptions, and place graphs for place descriptions – both turn out to fall short on our corpus of verbal indoor route descriptions. Hence, the paper will identify the characteristics of indoor route descriptions, identify strategies for knowledge extraction, and seek a unified graph representation.
