We came first in the city-based geolocation task at W-NUT 2016!
Well done to the team for their submission to the W-NUT 2016 geolocation shared task. This work helps in the science of estimating aggregate demographic statistics from public social media and can help us distinguish, for example, rural versus city-based topics.
For more information about the shared task, see the workshop site.
