Verifiable Information

The following use cases illustrate the application of ScatterBlogs-Analytics to several scenarios in order to gain situational awareness from social media content.

Attacks in Brussels, 2016

ScatterBlogs is used to analyze the March 2016 attacks in Brussels. Substantially more information can be assigned to a location due our location estimation then by using the (often missing) exact geo-position. In addition to an integrated view of enriched, publicly available data, it is also possible to employ filters for detection of messages of specific topics.

Floods in Europe, 2013

ScatterBlogs has been evaluated with situation awareness experts in public safety, critical infrastructure management, and disaster response. The following video gives an example of analytics tasks that had to be solved during a larger user study. The data was collected from Twitter and other sources during the 2013 European Floods. The results of the study demonstrated that the experts were highly convinced of the usefulness and applicability of the tools for real-world crisis events.

Earthquake in Virginia, 2011

This video shows how fast information can spread over social media. People at the east coast near the epicenter tweet 83 seconds after the earthquake began and 75 seconds later the first retweets appear on the west coast. It is also remarkable how people in southern Florida tweet about the earthquake two minutes before the secondary seismic wave (red in the video) reaches them.
