Twitter Earthquake Detection from the USGS


The USGS has a new program that tracks earthquake related words from tweets and combines them with its own quake analysis to provide a feed called the USGS Twitter Earthquake Detection program or USGS TED.

It's an experimental project to determine what kind of citizen info can be compiled and how to use it in disaster response.
