Social Media Geo Monitoring Tool
Being in the Social Media and Information business we tend to look for things in this space that our audience may find of interest. In this case, courtesy of ESRI, http://www.esri.com/services/disaster-response/gulf-oil-spill-2010/index.html a manufacturer of GIS, Geographic Information Systems software, we’ve found an interactive monitoring tool that is keeping tabs on an ongoing catastrophe that impacts us all – The BP Oil Spill.
ESRI’s software allows you to view location based feeds in real time including recent news, threatened wildlife sites, Tweets , Twitter photos, and YouTube videos. You can also add your own content and updates which allows for input from real people - unbiased by any of the media, corporate and PR outlets. In our humble opinion, this is Social Media at its best.
