WHO THEY ARE
FloodTags analyses online media and user generated content for water management and food security. Data sources include online news articles, blogs, forums, Twitter, Facebook public pages, and they connect to messengers such as WhatsApp and Telegram. They analyse these sources by using a mix of artificial intelligence, natural language processing and combinations with external data sources, including satellite imagery. Applications comprise real-time and historic (trend) analysis for emergency flood response, water scarcity management, water conflict resolution, integrated water management, food security and other water- and development related applications.
FloodTags believes that citizens and local communities are key resources in any social and water management problem. By listening to and anticipating on local perspectives, decision makers can take supported measures and responders have direct insight in the assistance needed on-the-ground.
