EMOTIVE - Extracting the Meaning Of Terse Information in a Geo-Visualisation of Emotion

This is an EPSRC and DSTL funded project and looks at the effective management and efficient use of data. The scale, diversity and distributed nature of current and emerging data assets are increasing. For example, every sixty seconds there are 98,000 tweets, 6,600 images uploaded to Flickr, 695,000 Facebook status updates, 79,364 Facebook wall posts, and 168 million emails sent [1]. As data becomes ever more ubiquitous and critical to decision making it is vital that it is turned into meaningful information.
