PIVOT is a web-based program that helps users to process and geospatially simulate social media data beside other media sources. Geospatial coordinates and content are used. PIVOT would enable researchers to concentrate their study of these data sources on smaller, more focused regional areas, potentially allowing them a more linear view of local populations and potentially offering more usable insights. In this paper we are conducting a usability test on PIVOT by recruiting participants and using think aloud activity. The participants are asked to perform few tasks on archive data and streaming API to check how the users are able to navigate through the tool and check if they are able to find the required information. After gathering the required data from the activity a set of questionnaire are asked to check the usability of tool and feedback’s are taken from participants to modify the tool into a better version.
