Location-aware social media is increasing being used to inform decisions in a spatiotemporal context. However, collecting, fusing, processing and merging information from different social media platforms is a challenge because of diversity of information between different platforms. Here, we present the WIMBY, which is able to access multiple social media platforms to help users answer the question "What's in my Backyard?". In doing so, the WIMBY helps to address the challenge of dealing with diverse social media information. It is believed that the WIMBY can be extended to include more information sources (including other social media platforms) to help inform decision makers in a wider array of applications.
