Communicating As A Data Scientist
Wow, this has been a crazy week here in the San Francisco Bay Area! If a pandemic wasn’t enough, we now have over 300 fires burning in the area as a result of an unusual summer thunderstorm accompanied by lightning strikes.But what about the general public? In such a situation, simply having the road names means that people are spending time looking up the locations on Google Maps and then figuring out if they need to evacuate or not - and this, in a situation when every second counts. So, what’s easiest for them? A map just like the one below - with areas marked out - and ideally an interactive map, where people can simply enter their address and then figure out if they need to evacuate or not.
