There are several data points within Twitter data that can be used for filtering by location. Which of these to use really depends upon the use case. This article describes each of these properties and develops a working example for a country specific filter.Posted on September 6, 2013 by admin Read More
Working at DataSift, I speak to many different clients and discuss their use cases regarding what type of data they would like to filter on, and include within their real-time data streams. I thought it would be useful to start capturing many of the common use cases in a single post and explain how these translate in to Curated Stream Definition Language (CSDL). If you are new to DataSift and or CSDL, the DataSift documentation is great and growing all the time, and this post should give some useful examples.
I will be adding to this post as and when I capture new examples. Please feel free to submit your own if you feel they will be beneficial to others.Posted on February 17, 2012 by admin Read More
