This study explores the automated spatiotemporal and attribute information extraction of earthquake events from web news reports and online official reports in China from 2015 to 2017. Combined with a web crawler, natural language processing, and geographic information science, a set of rules is created to automatically extract spatiotemporal and attribute information for earthquake events from web text, and geocoding is applied to map the earthquake events. The spatial and temporal distribution characteristics of earthquake events extracted from the web texts are then analyzed. This study compares the differences between web news reports and online official reports in terms of the quantity and spatiotemporal distribution of the earthquake events.
IRDR Working Paper Series
This Working Paper Series is a new publication of Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR), following the decision of the IRDR Scientific Committee in April 2019 to act to ‘Expand IRDR Network and Scientific Output’ (No. 5 of the IRDR Action Plan 2018-2020).
This Working Paper Series is thus specially made to facilitate the dissemination of the work of IRDR NCs, ICoEs, YS and institutions and individual experts that IRDR considers relevant to its mission and research agenda, and of important values for much broader range of audience working in DRR domains. As one will notice, all working papers in this series has anchored their relevance and contributions of their work toward SFDRR, IRDR, SDGs and Paris Agreement on climate change. It is the hope of the authors of the working papers and IRDR that this working paper series will not only bring new knowledge, experience and information toward disaster risk reduction, but also helped build better coherence of DRR with the mainstream agenda of UN today toward inclusive, resilient and sustainable human societies.
