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  ...  Much of this information now contains some form of geographical content because of the proliferation of location-aware devices, thus fostering the emergence of geosocial media -a new type of user-generated  ...  This process starts by collecting data from one social media source, using, for example, specific regions of interest, time intervals, and keywords.  ...

Privacy Threats and Protection Recommendations for the Use of Geosocial Network Data in Research

Ourania Kounadi, Bernd Resch, Andreas Petutschnig
2018 Social Sciences  
In this paper, we examine recent research efforts on the spectrum of privacy issues related to geosocial network data and identify the contributions and limitations of these research efforts.  ...  An additional risk is that geosocial media data are collected massively for research purposes, and the processing or publication of these data may further compromise individual privacy.  ...  Types of re-identified information are, for example, the prediction of a social media user's next location in a georeferenced post (Preoţiuc-Pietro and Cohn 2013), the location of social media posts from  ...

Big data and sustainable cities: applications of new and emerging forms of geospatial data in urban studies

Yeran Sun, Yunyan Du
2017 Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards  
Among the new and emerging forms of geospatial data, volunteered geographic information (or crowdsourced geographic information) and geosocial networking data are gaining much interest [1] [2] [3] [4]  ...  Those new forms of geospatial data all belong to geosocial networking data. Geosocial networking data tend to be 'big data' due to its large volume, unstructured forms and risk of bias.  ...  Authors' contributions YS and YD design and develop the structure of the paper. YS writes the paper. Both authors read and approved the final manuscript.  ...

Cultural investment and urban socio-economic development: a geosocial network approach

Xiao Zhou, Desislava Hristova, Anastasios Noulas, Cecilia Mascolo, Max Sklar
2017 Royal Society Open Science  
However, due to the lack of large-scale data with a fine spatio-temporal resolution, there have been limitations in terms of how planners can track the impact and measure the effectiveness of cultural  ...  Taking advantage of nearly 4 million transition records for three years in London from a popular location-based social network service, Foursquare, we study how the socio-economic impact of government  ...  Here, the values of location quotients vary by region owing to its industry makeup and can be interpreted through comparing with 1.  ...

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

Frank O. Ostermann
2021 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
The paper concludes that passive listening to publicly available geosocial media, in contrast to pro-active engagement with citizens, seems of limited use to understand and improve urban quality of life  ...  Consequently, this paper examines the relationship between geosocial media content and socio-demographic census data for a global city, London, at two administrative levels.  ...  The author would also like to thank the four reviewers for their valuable and helpful comments. Conflicts of Interest: The author declares no conflict of interest.  ...
