The demo will illustrate the features of a webGIS interface to support the rapid mapping activities after a natural disaster, with the goal of providing additional information from social media to the mapping operators. This demo shows the first results of the E2mC H2020 European project, where the goal is to extract precisely located information from available social media sources, providing accurate geolocating functionalities and, starting from posts searched in Twitter, extending the social media exploration to Flickr, YouTube, and Instagram.
