Abstract

In this paper we tackle the problem of generating natural route descriptions on the basis of input obtained from a commercially available way-finding system. Our framework and architecture incorporates the use of general principles drawn from the domain of natural language generation. Through examples we demonstrate that it is possible to bridge the gap between underlying data representations and natural sounding linguistic descriptions. The work presented contributes both to the area of natural language generation and to the improvement of way-finding system interfaces.
