Tracking population data could change disaster response
What about the people in a storm’s path? Where are they going (if they leave at all), and how quickly will they get there? Who gets left behind? Until now, it hasn’t been possible to visualize that information in the way meteorologists can visualize an oncoming hurricane. Thanks to large-scale population movement data – anonymized and aggregated by Facebook – that’s beginning to change.
