A Theoretic Perspective Review on Using Humans as Sensors for Disaster and Crisis Management

Authors(1) :-Smita S. Deogade

The extensive development in social media content recommends that the biggest "sensor organize" yet may be human. Expanding the participatory sensing model, this paper investigates the possibility of using human social systems as sensor systems, which offers ascend to an intriguing dependable sensing issue. Over the most recent couple of years, the fitness of humans to suddenly gather and auspicious offer setting data has been misused for emergency detection and crisis management. Aside from event-particular highlights, these frameworks share specialized methodologies and engineering answers for address the issues with catching, separating and extricating important data from data presented on OSNs by systems of human sensors. This paper gives audit of the event-based social systems and the fundamental standards and design.
