Facebook is working with three organizations — UNICEF, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and the World Food Programme — on a new maps initiative that aims to improve how communities are helped after disasters.

Called disaster maps, the resource uses “aggregated, de-identified” Facebook data to provide key information organizations said would be most helpful in improving how they respond and provide relief in the immediate hours after a crisis.

Three types of maps are available. Location-density maps show where people are physically located before, during, and after a crisis, and are compared to historical records (like population estimates).

The CHG90 is, to the best of my knowledge, the widest curved laptop monitor on the market. It is mind-bogglingly large, the span of the screen soaring out over the sides of a desk like a giant bird of prey. At this point, the object you’re describing resembles less a desktop monitor and more a truncated TV screen.
