Spatiotemporal RSS feeds

3In collaboration with Derek Cheong and Kevin Tolhurts, Peter and Matt have been investigating the use of public VicEmergency incident reports (right) to estimate automatically the approximate location of current fires. The process involves filtering incident reports (to identify relevant reports); clustering (to identify related reports about the same incident); and integration (combining related reports into an spatiotemporal incident that may develop and evolve over time and space). Although the work is in its early stages, initial results are promising and we are currently looking at several issues, including validation, efficient algorithms, and practical application.
