Measuring nation images was a challenging task when employing offline surveys was the only option. It was not only prohibitively expensive, but too much time-consuming and therefore unfitted to this rapidly changing world. Although demands for monitoring real-time nation images were ever-increasing, an affordable and reliable solution to measure nation images has not been available up to this date. The researcher in this study developed a semi-automatic ontology construction algorithm, named "double-crossing double keyword collection (or DCDKC)" to measure nation images from Wikipedia in real-time. The ontology, WikiOnto, can be used to reflect dynamic image changes. In this study, an instance of WikiOnto was constructed by applying the algorithm to the big-three exporting countries in East Asia, Korea, Japan, and China. Then, the numbers of page views for words in the instance of WikiOnto were counted. A collection of the counting for each country was compared to each other to inspect the possibility to use for dynamic nation images. As for the conclusion, the result shows how the images of the three countries have changed for the period the study was performed. It confirms that DCDKC can very well be used for a real-time nation-image monitoring system.
