Lucene Geographic and Temporal Extensions (LGTE) is an information retrieval tool developed at Technical University of Lisbon which can be used as a search engine or as evaluation system for information retrieval techniques for research purposes. LGTE is the IR system behind DIGMAP. It is based on Lucense with a multinomial language modeling extension.

LGTE introduces several extensions for dealing with geographical and temporal information. The package also includes utilities for information retrieval evaluation, such as classes for handling CLEF/TREC (Cross Language Evaluation Forúm/Text Retrieval Conference) topics and document collections.

LGTE is a layer on the top of Lucene and provides an extended Lucene API to integrate several services like snippets generation, query expansion, and many others. A set of unit tests is provided.

 LGTE 1.1.9
