    Abstract

    This paper describes the approach of the University of Twente at its first participation in GeoCLEF. A large effort went into the construction of a geographic thesaurus which was utilized to add geographic knowledge to the documents and queries. Geographic filtering was applied to the results returned from a retrieval by content run. Employing such a geographic knowledge base however showed no added value - the content-only baseline outperformed all geographically filtered runs.
