Monitoring Refugee movement with Google Maps

I thought this was an interesting article on CNN ... about 4 headlines down this afternoon.


Hightlights of the story ... note the last one. Very interesting ...

  • Google, U.N. team up to help pinpoint refugee movement
  • Maps will aid humanitarian operations, help inform about refugee crises
  • Special maps help track, give information about crises in each area
  • Google considering stand-alone version of its mapping software for field work
