Abstract:

When a crisis occurs, there is often little time to evaluate the situation and determine how best to respond. We use rapid ethnographic methods centered on the construction of geo-temporally contextualized social and knowledge networks. By utilizing a combination of Twitter and news media, the consulate attack in Libya were examined in near real time. In this work we outline a procedure to extract key insights from the event as an event unfolds using a suite of tools developed by a team of researchers from two universities.
