It seems like the English models have a tendency to label
GPE – see this issue reported on the spaCy issue tracker. (Interestingly, in the last comment, a user notes that this also happened when training a model from scratch on their own data.)
So it’s definitely possible that the entity here is actually a space + newline character suggested by spaCy’s model. Visually, it’s a little unfortunate, since it causes the entity label to break onto the new line. Given the web app’s rendering algorithm for NER, it’s unlikely to get the highlighting wrong – but you can annotate the task, save it and check it out in your dataset, just to be sure.
Btw, just had an idea for the front-end: In general, we do want Prodigy to always render whitespace as it comes in (as discussed here – your issue is actually a perfect example of why it matters). But how about a config option that will show visual indicators for whitespace characters? You know, like that setting in MS Word: a
· for a space, ⇥ for a tab, ︎ for a newline and so on.
Edit: Proof of concept:
