Spatiotemporal Footprints in Social Networks
A popular photo-sharing website allowing people to upload and share photos that may be tagged with location.
Global Positioning System, a satellite-based navigation system that provides location and time almost anywhere near the Earth’s surface.
- Spatial interaction models
Models describing interaction between two locations as a variable dependent on distance.
A popular microblogging and social networking service that supports sending text messages (which are called tweets) of less than 140 characters. Tweets may be associated with location.
Volunteered geographic information, a type of user-generated content with a spatial component (Goodchild 2007).
Spatiotemporal footprints discussed in this chapter are locational and temporal information regarding people’s activities that are digitally recorded. Spatial location may be automatically captured as latitude and...
