In this video, Megan Murphy from Newsy describes how Google assembled a new kind of interactive map to help residents avoid danger from Superstorm Sandy. Complete with a forecast track, cloud imagery, evacuation zones, traffic conditions, flood zone estimates, and red cross emergency shelters, the map brings real-time visualization together with predictive data. The map’s data is collected from multiple sources including the NOAA National Hurricane Center and the U.S. Naval Research laboratory.
Check out the super map for yourself.
