Abstract

In this paper, we outline our analysis of mass media and social media as used for disaster management. We looked at the differences among multiple sub-corpuses to find relatively unique keywords based on chronologies, geographic locations, or media types. We are currently analyzing a massive corpus collected from Internet news sources and Twitter after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Copyright is held by the author/owner(s).
