User-Generated Content: A Promising Data Source for Urban Informatics [chapter]

Song Gao, Yu Liu, Yuhao Kang, Fan Zhang
2021 The Urban Book Series  
First, we use geotagged social media data, a type of single-sourced UGC, to extract citizen demographics, mobility patterns, and place semantics associated with various urban functional regions.  ...  The third application links multi-sourced UGC to uncover urban spatial structures and human dynamics. We suggest that UGC data contain rich information in diverse aspects.  ...  Acknowledgements Song Gao would like to thank the support of this research from the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with funding  ...

Semantic enrichment of spatio-temporal trajectories for worker safety on construction sites

Muhammad Arslan, Christophe Cruz, Dominique Ginhac
2019 Personal and Ubiquitous Computing  
To reduce such fatalities, a system is proposed to monitor worker movements on a construction site by collecting their raw spatio-temporal trajectory data and enriching it with the relevant semantic information  ...  After pre-processing this collected data, three semantic enrichment techniques are used to construct semantically enriched trajectories which are as follows: (1) enrichment with the semantic points which  ...  Publisher's note Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations.

Semantic Annotation of Mobility Data using Social Media

Fei Wu, Zhenhui Li, Wang-Chien Lee, Hongjian Wang, Zhuojie Huang
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '15  
Previous research on mobility data mining has been mainly focused on mining patterns using only the mobility data. In this paper, we study the problem of using social media to annotate mobility data.  ...  Combining the mobility data and surrounding social media data enables us to semantically understand why a person travels to a location at a particular time (e.g., attending a local event or visiting a  ...  Potential data sources include environment data, news data, and crime data. Figure 1 : 1 An example of semantic annotation on location history using social media.  ...
