Social Media Analytics Tools for AAG

The Center for Human Dynamics in the Mobile Age (HDMA) at San Diego State University has developed two innovative social media analytics tools for the coming 2015 AAG Annual Meeting in Chicago, April 21-25, 2015. The SMART dashboard can summarize hot topics, voices, retweets, and persons related to 2015 AAG event. The GeoViewer can visualize the location-based social media in Chicago nearby the Conference hotel (Hyatt Regency Hotel) and what are the hot events and voices in the neighborhood. These tools are free and public accessible.

Let’s use the #AAG2015 and #HDMA to provide the two cool tools developed by us!

Give them a look!
