The Verge: MIT is using social media to map flooding from Hurricane Irma in real time

The Verge: MIT is using social media to map flooding from Hurricane Irma in real time. “The system uses a chatbot that users can message directly through any of the three social media sites, which sends users a link that will allow them to upload their location, the depth of the water, a description, and a picture, which is then displayed on a map. Users can then share their report on social media.”
