Abstract

Situational awareness is one of the most important factors for efficient and effective response in crisis and disaster situations. Up-to-date, valid and relevant data is one of the means to support crisis management actions, and the development and use of social media, as it is common nowadays, has become a very interesting research topic. In this paper, we describe a concept for using social media information and open source data in combination with expert knowledge and relevance assessment. The main problem with data collected from these sources is, on the one hand, the large amount and difficulty of processing, and on the other hand, the difficulty of determining its validity. This concept aims to address these two problems and combine the results to propose a solution for better situational awareness in crisis and disaster management.
