|Abstract:||We are presenting a method to recognise geographical references in free text. Our tool must work on various languages with a minimum of language-dependant resources, except a gazetteer. The main difficulty is to disambiguate these place names by distinguishing places from persons and by selecting the most likely place out of a list of homographic place names world-wide. The system uses a number of language-independent clues and heuristics to disambiguate place name homographs. The final aim is to index texts with the countries and cities they mention and to automatically visualise this information on a geographical map.|
