Abstract: As a kind of social networking service,microblog service can share and broadcast information mainly through the microbloggers’ followers and features strong timeliness of topics and rapid spread.This paper viewed the microblogs as a kind of event sensor which can perceive the dynamic behaviors in the city,and started with identifying the to-pics in microblogs,and then detecting the spatial-temporal events in microblogs.This paper presented a topic model named ST-LDA for analyzing the topics in microblogs.Applying this model,the microblogs with similar semantics and close spatial-temporal nature can be classified into a same topic.Then,this paper gave a method of discovering the spatial-temporal events from topics. Experimental results based on the real data from show that our method has a higher recall and precision ratio than LDA-based and TimeLDA-based methods.

Key words: Microblogs,Spatial-temporal events,Topic model
