Stumbled upon a few interesting papers regarding automated extraction of data from text:
This paper explains the VIINA project and applies observations, strangely enough, to agriculture. It contains luminosity analysis (from satellite imagery).
VIINA is focused on the 2022 Russian Invasion of Ukraine. It ingests (local) news as well as liveuamap using Natural Language Processing (NLP) for events (strikes, civilian harm, territory control) and provides geocoding as well as categorizes each event with predicted probabilities it belongs to each category.
