ICCM 2013: Jus MacKinnon: Media Monitoring in support of UN-OCHA’s response to Typhoon Yolanda

Justine MacKinnon from the Standby Task Force discusses Media Monitoring and Mapping in support of UN-OCHA’s response to Typhoon Yolanda. Working with the Digital Humanitarian Network & wonderful volunteers from around the world to examine over 60 different hashtags on twitter, they collected over 1 million tweets that were then thrown to the crowd via MicroMappers for verification and cleaning, providing OCHA with better situational awareness for the Philippines. @fidget02
