Big data across borders

Our evaluation of this data has allowed us to prepare a comparison between the different coastal regions. For example, the reviews for destination X are compared with reviews for destination Y. The computer will look at the words featured in the reviews, whereby stop words such as ‘the’ and ‘a’ will not be included. The computer will subsequently produce a selection of words which often feature in the one group of reviews, but not, or to a much lesser extent, in the other group. This will clearly show which words are distinctive for these groups of reviews. It’s also possible to create an automatic summary of sentences within which these words are used, producing an overall image of the context.
