Making sense of user-generated Web content such as social media data, blogs, or even Wikipedia entries poses interesting research challenge considering its lack of structure, amount, and associated noise. This work introduces a range of online content summaries for such unstructured data. Besides the typical spatial, temporal and thematic summaries, we introduce two additional views. Geoevents are emerging events that are limited in spatial scope hashtags and that are detected automatically by comparing their spatial distribution to a global topic search.

Links-of-Interests (LOIs) are connection summaries between geographic locations, people and concepts. These content summaries are available as part of the functionality of a Web-based tool that allows for the interactive visualization, querying and exploration of such unstructured data. This talk will discuss research results and demo the capabilities of the visualization prototype.

Refreshments will be served at 4:15 PM.
