A Multi-lingual pedestrian navigation and campus
guidance system using CloudMade API.
In: Proceedings of 10th International Conference on GeoComputation, November 2009, Sydney, Australia.
The importance of a good campus navigation system cannot be ignored as the users will
vary from students, special guests, visitors and multi-lingual attendees. Providing a
navigation and guidance system with a multi-lingual interface helps in personalizing the
system according to the user’s preference for the language of interaction. [Pascal Neis,
2009] is an example of a multi-lingual routing application for navigation developed at the
University of Bonn where optimal paths are generated with textual description in the
user’s preferred language. Natural language generation (NLG) is the subfield of artificial
intelligence and computational linguistics. It is concerned with the construction of
computer systems that can produce understandable texts in human languages and form
some underlying non-linguistic representation of information in order to meet specified
communicative goals [McDonald D.D., 1987].
