I think this is an extremely elegant solution to a very difficult problem after disasters: Getting a realistic picture of the size of the problem, and quickly.|
It can be incredibly hard for responders, (especially those outside the affected area), to get a reliable picture of what is broken where, and how many people need help. This was a huge problem during Katrina.
Note to self: make sure bug out location is near a Waffle House.
