Gazetteers play an essential role in GIS in translating between place name and coordinate-based descriptions of location. The proliferation of location-aware social media applications has led to new sources of gazetteer data, many of which are crowd-sourced. They complement the conventional authoritative resources that are typically linked to published map products. We illustrate the variation in performance of several, mostly social media based, gazetteer resources for a reverse-geocoding photo captioning task and demonstrate the advantage of a meta-gazetteer service that integrates multiple individual gazetteer resources and employs several toponym ranking methods.
