As Hurricane Sandy bears down on the East Coast, there’s a fascinating amount of data and collaboration on news aggregation to get info to those in its way. This image is from Google’s Crisis Map for the hurricane.
Along with the usual news websites live feeds, I remembered Lexical Gap’s “This Is Now” project that live updates Instagram photos from select cities. The only city affected in their list is NYC, but it’s fun to watch what is normally a largely varied stream of activities turn into one collective experience.
And don’t forget this incredibly wind visualization. That should be fun to watch.
