This invention describes a method for combining locations of arbitrary granularity and predicting semantic categories for those groupings. In this context, a location can refer to anything from an individual place of interest to a larger administrative area like a neighborhood or city. Similarly, a semantic category could be equally expressive, encompassing things like “family friendly,” “safe for travelers,” or “trendy”.
