The growth of the Web and the increase in using GPS-enabled devices, coupled with the exponential growth of the social media sites, have led to a surge in research interest in Geo-folksonomy analysis. In Geo-Folksonomy, a user assigns an electronic tag to a geographical place resource identified by its longitude and latitude. The assigned tags are used to manage, categorize and describe place resources. Building data models of Geo-folksonomy data sets that represents and analyses, tags, location and time information can be helpful in studying and analysing place information. The aim of my research is to use the spatio temporal data available on the Social web, to extract dynamic place profile. Building a dynamic profile involves including the temporal dimension in the Geo-folksonomy. Indeed, adding the temporal dimension can provide an understanding of geographic places as perceived by users over time.
