Leveraging Geospatially-Oriented Social Media Communications in Disaster Response
McClendon, S. and Robinson, A. (2013). Leveraging Geospatially-Oriented Social Media Communications in Disaster Response. International Journal of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management. 5(1).
The authors compare the capabilities of two popular systems used to collect and map open source disaster information: Project Epic’s Tweak the Tweet (TtT) and Ushahidi. The research compares and contrasts the frequency, content, and location components of information in both systems. Based on the results, the authors identify considerations for future social media mapping tools to support crisis management.
