Example text

As image segmentation relies on a similarity function that is used to decide if two neighbor pixels are similar, so does our approach rely on a Boolean function fsim which, given a cell c and a description D, verifies whether c adheres to D. 6. e. , a park that crosses a shopping street. 3 Implementation Semantic region growing as used here, is aimed at segmenting or extracting settings according to a description D and a set of m cells, referred to as seeding cells Cseed ¼ f~c1 ; ~c2 ; . , fsim ð~c; DÞ ¼ TRUE—and it is not yet classified as a member of another setting adhering to the same description D, ~c will be the starting point of a new setting: A recursive process extends the starting cell until the adjacent neighborhood does not adhere any longer to the description D.

Many suggest that the semantics of the term Place is tightly bound to the idea of affordance and activities (Jordan et al. 1998; Scheider and Janowicz 2014). As a matter of fact, drawing the connection of action to place, is essential for the ability to plan (Abdalla and Frank 2012). Schatzki asserted that: “[…] places are defined by reference to human activity” (Schatzki 1991, p. 655). He positions human activities as the central concept for understanding the construction of places. Furthermore, he explains that such representations of places organize into settings, local areas and regions.
