Abstract

We present work in the spatio-temporal-thematic analysis of citizen-sensor observations pertaining to real-world events. Using Twitter as a platform for obtaining crowd-sourced observations, we explore the interplay between these 3 dimensions in extracting insightful summaries of social perceptions behind events. We present our experiences in building a web mashup application, Twitris that extracts and facilitates the spatio-temporal-thematic exploration of event descriptor summaries.
