Our lab member, Jimin Wang, recently completed his MS in GIS degree. His master project focuses on Advancing Spatial and Textual Analysis with GeoAI. Particularly, Jimin has published three related papers on this topic, which are:
- Jimin Wang and Yingjie Hu (2019): Enhancing spatial and textual analysis with EUPEG: an extensible and unified platform for evaluating geoparsers. Transactions in GIS, 23(6), 1393-1419. [PDF]
- Jimin Wang and Yingjie Hu (2019): Are we there yet? Evaluating state-of-the-art neural network based geoparsers using EUPEG as a benchmarking platform, In: Proceedings of the 3rd ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Geospatial Humanities, Nov. 5, Chicago, USA. [PDF]
- Jimin Wang, Yingjie Hu, and Kenneth Joseph (2020): NeuroTPR: A Neuro-net ToPonym Recognition model for extracting locations from social media messages. Transactions in GIS, accepted. [PDF]
Jimin’s master committee members are Dr. Yingjie Hu and Dr. Enki Yoo. In addition, Dr. Kenneth Joseph also provided guidance to Jimin’s research.
Moving forward, Jimin has received a fellowship package from UB’s PhD Excellence Initiative which aims to “recruiting the very best PhD students and providing them with transformative academic programs that prepare them for future success”. Jimin will continue his study as a PhD student in our GeoAI Lab, and we look forward to his new achievements in the coming years.
Congratulations again, Jimin!
