All, for those interested in geoparsers I'm pleased to say that we 
(University of Edinburgh) have recently made updates to our free Unlock 
Text service.

We now support  2 separate geoparser engines - the 'Edinburgh LTG 
Geoparser' and a modified Clavin engine. Details on both here:


There is a documented  API and a simple beta demonstrator that allows 
you to upload a document and geoparse it (for smallish documents only - 
if you have a large amount of text please use the API)

Id be keen to get feedback and if folks that have  a play with it could 
complete this : http://edin.ac/1dbC1IR   Id be very grateful.

Comments direct to this list also welcomed in the spirit of trying to 
improve our offerings...
