This paper describes several steps in the derivation of boundaries of imprecise regions using the Web as the information source. We discuss how to use the Web to obtain locations that are part of and locations that are not part of the region to be delineated, and then we propose methods to compute the region algorithmically. The methods introduced are evaluated to judge the potential of the approach.
