Abstract: This paper describes an advanced prototype of a web-based geographical information system used for association of text strings describing locations with real-world geographical locations. The prototype was developed for the ConTraffic system that contains more than one billion text records describing events about cargo containers. The raw record contains a textual string describing the location where a cargo container event took place. To be able to use this raw data for analysis and visualization of the behavior of cargo containers, the location text strings need to be matched to real-world locations with known coordinates. We call this process “location cleaning”. The prototype allows the user to “clean” multiple location text strings through an interactive geographical, user-friendly and efficient web-based interface.
