It also represents a useful resources for experimentation and methodological development. The data is both a social and an informational resource, enabling the analysis of a significant social event and the development/application of computational tools for, among other aims, natural language processing, information retrieval, meta data analysis. In addition to the principle collection of tweets (UK Riots Database), a sub-collection has been extracted that includes only the geo-tagged tweets. Finally, these databases are stored on MongoDB and are made queryable using a special interface (see the UK Riots Database for access and instructions) that allows queries to be stored in another dataset, shared, and re-executed.
