Enhancing Detection of Crisis-related Mircoblogs by Geo-based Lexical Approach

Master Thesis


Microblogs are a rich source of information. During large-scale crisis events such as earthquake or flood, people share valuable information via microblogs. This information is crucial for relevant authorities so that appropriate actions can be taken. However, the information from micro-blogs is not easy to interpret. Most of the data which is retrieved from the microblogs is unstructured and raw. These characteristics of the data make it difficult to extract related information from it. Existing approaches have the ability to detect the crisis event using microblogs, however, these approaches are not appropriate and sufficient to extract relevant information from them. Mostly classification and lexicon approaches are used to filter out useful data but they do not capture the human behavior and many classification approaches also ignore the location information. Existing lexicon approaches only perform well for a specific event and it is true only if the lexicons are made in advance using related data for a particular event. In this thesis, we develop and analyze an approach to make use of classification and spatial information present in the tweets to find the related hotspot clusters. Our hypothesis is that people microblog (tweet) about the same topic if they are in the same area (hotspot) that is affected by a disaster event. We then create lexicons from these hotspot clusters and use them to detect and re-tag misclassified tweets. To evaluate our approach against the existing approaches we make use of six publicly available (geo-tagged) tweet datasets. The results after allowing our extension shows significant gains in the F1 score. The proposed method combines the benefits of regular classification and lexicon approach to detect useful information from a developing crisis event.
