In this paper we deal with machine learning methods and algorithms applied to the area of geographic data. First, we briefly introduce learning with a supervisor that is applied in our case. Then we describe the algorithm ‘Framework’ together with heuristic methods used in it. Definitions of particular geographic objects, i.e. their concepts, are formulated in our background theory Transparent Intensional Logic (TIL) as TIL constructions. These concepts serve as general hypotheses. Basic principles of supervised machine learning are generalization and specialization. Given a positive example, the learner generalizes, while after a near-miss example specialization is applied. Heuristic methods deal with the way generalization and specialization are applied.
