A survey on location estimation techniques for events detected in Twitter

Detection of events using voluntarily generated content in microblogs has been the objective of numerous recent studies. One essential challenge tackled in these studies is estimating the locations of events. In this paper, we review the state-of-the-art location estimation techniques used in the localization of events detected in microblogs, particularly in Twitter, which is one of the most popular microblogging platforms worldwide. We analyze these techniques with respect to the targeted event type, granularity of estimated locations, location-related features selected as sources of spatial evidence, and the method used to make aggregate decisions based on the extracted evidence. We discuss the strengths and advantages of alternative solutions to various problems related to location estimation, as well as their preconditions and limitations. We examine the most widely used evaluation methods to analyze the accuracy of estimations and present the results reported in the literature. We also discuss our findings and highlight important research challenges that may need further attention.


A Hopfield neural network with multi-compartmental activation
Akhmet, Marat (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-05-01)
The Hopfield network is a form of recurrent artificial neural network. To satisfy demands of artificial neural networks and brain activity, the networks are needed to be modified in different ways. Accordingly, it is the first time that, in our paper, a Hopfield neural network with piecewise constant argument of generalized type and constant delay is considered. To insert both types of the arguments, a multi-compartmental activation function is utilized. For the analysis of the problem, we have applied the ...
A Study on particle filter based audio-visual face tracking on the AV16.3 dataset
Yılmaz, Yunus Emre; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
People tracking has received considerable attention as a research field recently. Since, there are a wide range of application areas that requires to track single or multi target people in different environments with various scenarios using a variety of sensors. In this kind of tracking scenarios, usage of audio and visual information together is commonly preferred method, because these cues are mostly exist in the tracking environment and they contain complementary information about the targets. Our work f...
A usability evaluation framework and a case study on a supplier portal system
Babayiğit, Elif Fatma; Şen, Tayyar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
The goal of this thesis is to provide a usability evaluation framework in the area of e-procurement technologies and a case study on this base. A survey of the concepts of human computer interaction, usability and usability evaluation techniques is carried out. Additionally current e-procurement technologies are explored and specifically a Company̕s Supplier Portal System which was employed in year 2003, as an e-procurement technology for the procurement of direct goods, is taken into consideration. Pointin...
A Case study on the elective information technologies course policy in lower secondary schools
Burhanlı, Satı; Akar, Hanife; Department of Educational Sciences (2017)
In this case study, the implementation of course policy in public lower secondary schools was investigated through the elective course Information Technologies and Software (ITS). The decision making and implementation processes were examined by means of observations, interviews and questionnaires. The policy implementation was examined as a single embedded case study in 18 lower secondary schools in Çankaya district of Ankara. The participants were the administrators (N=18), the teachers who teach the elec...
A geographic information systems tool development for geostatistical analysis of endangered endemic vascular plants of Turkey
Demirci, Barbaros; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Information Systems (2005)
Modern information systems strive to provide effective use of resources. Supplied with analysis tools, geographical information systems (GIS) can serve its stakeholders with minimal requirements. In this study, GIS capabilities were employed for Turkish Flora. Data related with the threatened plants that are indigenous to Turkey were gathered from the relevant literature and reshaped into a dataset in which spatial locations were represented in a geographically referenced format. Afterwards, this output was...
