El Nino

The city of Los Angeles published a map in January that lets users see both decision-informing trends and the location of resources. Using the application, users can toggle layers that let them know what the weather is doing around the city, where traffic is backed up, where the power is out, where they can find sand bags to prevent flood damage and more. The app is built straight into Google's mapping platform, which city officials say allows for people to easily get directions to resources on their smartphones. The map is fed with real-time data and can be updated with new layers
