Improving Situational Awareness in Emergencies through Crowd Supported Analysis of Social Media

Rogstadius, Jakob; Kostakos, Vassilis; Laredo, Jim; Vukovic, Maja

In this ongoing research project, we develop an information system that aims to improve situational awareness and shorten response times in emergency response situations. Through a combination of algorithmic and crowdsourcing techniques, the proposed system gathers, analyzes, organizes and then visualizes social media activity around an event in real-time and turns overwhelming streams of status updates into actionable pieces of information. This document is an extended abstract to the poster with the same name.
