Data and Methods

The data accessible through the API and ADOReD (the dashboard) has been collected using:

  • Twitter posts are harvested using the Twitter Streaming API, which gives access in real-time to all newly posted tweets. The stream of tweets is filtered to include only the users that were either located in Australia at the time of posting or that mentioned Australia in their Twitter profile (excluding retweets to avoid document repetitions and to minimize, to the extent possible, content that would likely be produced by “bots”);
  • Flickr posts are filtered geographically, with a bounding box covering the whole of Australia;
  • YouTube posts are filtered using multiple geographic queries that cover the whole country;
  • Reddit posts are collected from subreddits that have Australian locations as their name.
