Exploring Geo-Text Data: Place Names, Place Relations, and Place Sentiments
Tuesday, January 29, 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Category: Webinars

Recent years have witnessed an exponential growth of data that link geographic locations with natural language texts (geo-text data for short). Examples include geotagged tweets, geotagged Wikipedia articles, as well as news articles and online reviews that contain place names. These geo-text data offer unique opportunities for discovering a variety of knowledge. In this webinar, I present three studies that discover different knowledge by analyzing three types of geo-text data. The discovered knowledge can support disaster response, urban planning, and other applications that benefit our society.
