Abstract:
In order to minimize the damage in case of a disaster, it is important to collect and spread accurate information quickly. Therefore, utilizing Twitter at the time of accidents has been gaining attention. In this paper, we propose a real-time disaster-related information sharing system based on the utilization of Twitter. The proposed system consists of two functions, the one is a disaster-related information tweeting function that automatically attaches user's accurate current geo-location information (address) and the hashtag of the form ``#(municipality name) disaster,'' and the other is a disaster-related information mapping function that plots neighboring disaster-related tweets on a map in real time. We implemented the system on a linux server and conducted a verification experiment. The results of the experiment verify the usefulness of the proposed system.
