Major Open Data Collection - Twitter activity related to flooding in Jakarta, Indonesia

Project title


Counts of geolocated tweets containing the word ‘flood’ or ‘banjir’ within the city of Jakarta, Indonesia for the 2014/2015 monsoon season. Counts were created within ‘RW’ municipal areas at hourly intervals, and include confirmed reports of flooding sent by members of the public to the @petajkt twitter account, as well as other unconfirmed tweets which match specified keywords. Keyword matching is based on substring pattern matching, and so can include tweets where a keyword is part of another word or hashtag.
