Location density maps show where people are located before, during and after a disaster to help response organisations understand areas impacted by a natural disaster.
Movement maps illustrate patterns of movement between different neighborhoods or cities over a period of several hours to allow responders to better allocate resources regionally.
Safety Check maps are based on where our community uses the Safety Check feature to notify their friends and family that they are safe during a disaster.
Facebook is stated to share this information with trusted organisations that have the capacity to act on the data and respect privacy standards, starting with UNICEF, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the World Food Programme.
"Over time, we intend to make it possible for additional organisations and governments to participate in this program. All applications will be reviewed carefully by people at Facebook, including those with local expertise," stated Jackman.
