In this paper, we present The gEoSpatial Language Annotator (TESLA)—a tool which supports human annotation of geospatial lan- guage corpora. TESLA interfaces with a GIS database for annotating grounded geospatial entities and uses Google Earth for visualiza- tion of both entity search results and evolving object and speaker position from GPS tracks. We also discuss a current annotation effort us- ing TESLA to annotate location descriptions in a geospatial language corpus.
