Data Visualization of Street Trees
"If you're allergic to ash trees, then it's important to know when the trees are pollinating so you can avoid them," said Adam Laskowtiz, a researcher at Intel Labs.
Can Big Data Prevent Allergy Attacks?
People use data visualization based on public information to find pollen-safe paths.
Itchy eyes, sneezing, stuffy and runny noses, coughing and even asthma attacks are rites of spring that come with blooming plants and skyrocketing pollen counts, but big data could spell big relief for allergy sufferers. Data visualizations available online today can help people plot routes that will allow them to avoid high-pollen areas and in the future this information could be made accessible on mobile devices.
