WIMBY: What's in my backyard?
Dorkhom, Michael, Woodley, Alan, Geva, Shlomo, & Nayak, Richi (2016) WIMBY: What's in my backyard? In Hanjalic, Alan, Qualcomm, Cees Snoek, & Worring, Marcel (Eds.) Proceedings of the 2016 ACM on Multimedia Conference, ACM, Amsterdam, Netherlands, pp. 714-716.
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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
