Applications and Prospects illustrates a variety of practical applications, including route navigation, mapping travel narratives, multimedia tagging, question‐answering, communication with artificial agents, scene rendering from text, and spatiotemporal event tracking from textual and structured data sources. The authors analyze some of the texts in these applications in terms of ISO‐Space annotation scheme discussed in Chapter 5 along with their relevant DITL representations. The chapter concludes with an enumeration of some open issues, such as more extensive multilingual analysis and annotation, modeling of functional aspects of spatial representation, handling of fictive motion, and further integration of different qualitative calculi and language processing.

Keywords: artificial agents; dynamic interval temporal logic (DITL); event tracking; ISO‐Space; multimedia tagging; question‐answering; route navigation; scene rendering; travel narratives
