Sickness Forecasting & Mapping App




It’s no secret that as the weather gets colder, the number of people that get sick increases as a result.

Being exposed to those that are sick is how most of us become sick ourselves, so knowing where a large number of people are sick can be helpful.

An app called SickWeather acts as a forecasting tool that shows you where lots of people are saying that they are experiencing symptoms.

It does this by scanning social media posts and other data sources to gather signals of areas that show hot zones in your area.

Knowing about these areas can be helpful so you can avoid them as this app serves as an early warning system for outbreaks.

Their ability to predict outbreaks is pretty impressive based on the technology they’ve developed.
