COLLECTING DISASTER DEBRIS DATA WITH SOCIAL MEDIA AND CROWDSOURCING
The SUstainable Material Management Extreme Events Reconnaissance (SUMMEER) organization (see https://www.summeer.org for more details), funded by the National Science Foundation (CBET 2014330), invites you to a training webinar on the collection of disaster debris data with social media and crowdsourcing, by Haiyan Hao.

When impacted by disasters, impacted people tend to share their experiences or observations on social media platforms, which may include high-quality data, e.g., images, videos, or texts, tagged with geo-locations that tell the situation of the disaster-damaged site. Algorithms such as computer vision or text processing can then be used to identify on-topic social media posts for human assessors’ further validation. Crowdsourcing data is often more targeted and structured than social media data. For severe disasters bringing large volumes of debris, it will be labor-intensive and time-consuming to collect debris data with official agencies sorely. Social media and crowdsourcing can help this by involving the general public in debris management. This webinar will introduce methods for collecting and processing debris data with social media and crowdsourcing for sustainable debris management.
