Utilizing ArcGIS to analyze social media data to examine Ebola
Authors: Shannon Doyle
My presentation aims to show how GIS can work with geo-referenced Twitter data to analyze Ebola topic discussion activities and correlate those with the resulting analysis from Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone (GDELT) data. The results can be utilized in GIS software along with Twitter data. The correlation of the datasets will be examined and discussed, along with the possibility of how the media is feeding into the surge of social media activity.
