TurkTelekom published a big-data competition call for researchers in 2018. The aim of the competition is determining needs of Syrian refugees by examining 1-year mobile communication data and offering solutions and roadmaps. With the leadership of MiReKoc (Migration Research Center of Koç University) a team of researchers assembled and joined the challenge. We have created an online tool for researchers to geo-spatially filter and examine the data provided by TurkTelekom. The tool also enables you to browse the related newspaper titles with the desired date interval and leave comments on data points to collaborate with other researchers. The project was awarded 1 st place in the “labor” category.
