DHS and NGA Social Media Workshop
The DHS/NGA Social Media Working Group developed out of a two-day workshop, “Identification of Key Knowledge Gaps in Social Media Use During Disasters,” sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency July 22-23, 2013. The workshop looked at current uses of social media during disasters and social media research being conducted by universities. Users of social media from disaster response agencies, the federal government and nonprofit organizations identified challenges using social media during and in support of disaster response. University researchers identified research gaps in three major areas: 1) technical challenges; 2) visual and data analytic challenges; and 3) social sciences challenges. 5
