First two publications of 2014
I’ve mentioned it before, but now the official links have arrived for my latest work in user-generated content research:
Together with Arzu Çöltekin and Gennady Andrienko I have published a paper titled Towards (re)constructing narratives from georeferenced photographs through visual analytics in The Cartographic Journal. You can find this official version here.
Similarly, the article Uneven geographies of user-generated information: Patterns of increasing informational poverty with Mark Graham, Bernie Hogan and Ahmed Medhat has gone online at the Annals of the Association of American Geographers. (You can obtain a free pre-print copy from the SSRN.)
Finally, I’m excited that the insights from this second paper have been covered in an article on VICE’s Motherboard channel. If you don’t fancy reading the above academic paper, this article gives you the gist about our Wikipedia-centred research in a more accessible form. Enjoy!
