- Volunteered Geographic Information fuzzy databases flexible querying VGI quality assessment
The paper presents an approach to manage Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) to point out anomalous conditions of the environment. This can help administrators in charge of the governance and maintenance activities of the territory to plan mitigation and safeguard interventions. To this end, a system is designed to collect VGI reports and operators can analyze the reports contents by formulating flexible queries. The novelty of the proposal is the search framework of VGI reports designed to support distinct needs, among which the assessment of VGI quality which is one important issues in such applications. Flexible queries are formalized and evaluated within a fuzzy database approach.
