M5. Geosocial intelligence: unleashing the power of people for better urban resilience

Urban Resilience research advances our capacity to understand and promote the resilience of cities to sudden extreme events as well as long-term infrastructure transformation needed to adapt to them. These events can have natural causes (flooding, bushfire or hurricane) or human ones (terrorism, pollution or infrastructure failure). A Geo-Social Intelligence framework sorts the noise of social media into knowledge about the city and, then, transform this knowledge into relevant information for asset management or emergency responses. This session calls for papers presenting existing or theoretical frameworks allowing for the capture of critical social media data (environmental variables, infrastructure functionality, social behaviour or government responses to extreme events) in (near) real time and relaying this information through public information systems and next generation decision support tools.
