Social Uplifting using Twitter and GIS

Due to the influx of large microscale datasets obtained from social media, there is a renewed interest in understating human health within neighborhoods; especially in mitigating negative health outcomes. Working with colleagues from the SiTI Higher Institute on Territorial Systems, Turin, Italy, we have embarked on a study to understand how human sentiment is affected by neighborhood health over time and space. Preliminary results have already been disseminated, with future presentations and publications to ensue.
