Geosocial capta in geographical research – a critical analysis

Michal Rzeszewski
2016 Cartography and Geographic Information Science  
Therefore, caution should be exercised when aggregating capta from more than one social media platform. Geotagged content can represent various interactions and intentions of its creators.  ...  The results indicate that the interpretation of geosocial media capta can must consider underlying social processes, but such linkages are currently poorly understood.  ...  But a geotagged tweet, a digital photo posted on a photo-sharing site, a blog post, or a Foursquare check-in can be the results of many different, incomparable processes.  ...

Geosocial Location Classification: Associating Type to Places Based on Geotagged Social-Media Posts [article]

Elad Kravi, Benny Kimelfeld, Yaron Kanza, Roi Reichart
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper we study the problem of Geosocial Location Classification, where the type of a site, e.g., a building, is discovered based on social-media posts.  ...  We tested the two approaches over a dataset of geotagged tweets. Our results demonstrate the superiority of the joint approach.  ...  In this paper, we study the novel approach of assigning types to sites based on geotagged social-media posts.  ...

Crowd-sourcing the smart city: Using big geosocial media metrics in urban governance

Matthew Zook
2017 Big Data & Society  
Geosocial media data and metrics derived from them can provide useful insight and policy direction.  ...  It is also, however, potentially troubling when Big Data (particularly derived from social media) is applied uncritically to urban governance via the ideas and practices of "smart cities".  ...  Geosocial media metrics in urban governance Geosocial media data-geotagged content created by individuals and shared through social media and accessible for collection by others-have become increasingly  ...

Geosocial gauge: a system prototype for knowledge discovery from social media

Arie Croitoru, Andrew Crooks, Jacek Radzikowski, Anthony Stefanidis
2013 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
Furthermore, the wide spectrum of social media data and service types provides a multitude of perspectives on real-world activities and happenings, thus opening new frontiers in geosocial knowledge discovery  ...  To address these challenges, this article presents a system prototype for harvesting, processing, modeling, and integrating heterogeneous social media feeds towards the generation of geosocial knowledge  ...  In this particular case, limiting the search to the peak dates we find in Flickr clusters of images contributed on these dates.  ...

Query Processing of Geosocial Data in Location-Based Social Networks

Arianna D'Ulizia, Patrizia Grifoni, Fernando Ferri
2021 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
The increasing use of social media and the recent advances in geo-positioning technologies have produced a great amount of geosocial data, consisting of spatial, textual, and social information, to be  ...  In this paper, we focus on the issue of query processing by providing a systematic literature review of geosocial data representations, query processing methods, and evaluation approaches published over  ...  To show this interest in numbers, we searched for "geosocial networking" OR "geosocial networks" OR "location-based social networks" in the title of the scientific articles indexed in the search engine  ...

Linking Geosocial Sensing with the Socio-Demographic Fabric of Smart Cities

Frank O. Ostermann
2021 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
The findings of limited links between geosocial media content and socio-demographic characteristics support earlier critiques on the utility of geosocial media for smart city planning purposes.  ...  This paper argues that a city cannot be smart without citizens in the loop, and that a geosocial sensor might be one component to achieve that.  ...  Acknowledgments: The author would like to thank Andrea Ballatore and Stefano de Sabbata for the insightful discussions and their support in working with and understanding their previous work on user-generated  ...

The Effect of Regional Variation and Resolution on Geosocial Thematic Signatures for Points of Interest [chapter]

Grant McKenzie, Krzysztof Janowicz
2017 Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography  
This aggregation of topics to the type level creates thematic signatures that can be used for place categorization, data cleansing and conflation, semantic search, and so on.  ...  Computational models of place are a key component of spatial information theory and play an increasing role in research ranging from spatial search to transportation studies.  ...  Intuitively, reviews, social media postings, news, and so forth, about state parks are more likely to use terms such as trail, hike, and landscape, than descriptions of other places, say universities.  ...
