Twicalli: a social seismograph

This platform is currently fully operative, and its design emerged from a partnership between the Millennium Research Center of the Semantic Web (predecessor of our institute) and the National Seismological Center.

Twicalli is able to detect and analyze the data posted in Twitter by users who write concepts such as tremor, seismic movement and earthquake. Twicalli provides additional information as a complement to seismological measurement systems, allowing to define the extent of the impact of an earthquake and the potential repercussions on the population.

The IMFD part of the project is led by Bárbara Poblete, associate researcher at IMFD in the Department of Computer Science of the Universidad de Chile.

Twic alli weas developed with the collaboration of Jazmine Maldonado and Jheser Guzmán.
