SickWeather Maps out Where the Sick People Are (So You Can Avoid Them)

by Hazel Chua

There are a lot of apps that make use of information that people have posted on their public social network profiles. For example, there’s Hell is Other People, which is an app that helps anti-social people avoid other people by utilizing other users’ check-in data.

Then there’s SickWeather, which maps out where all the sick people are so healthy people can stay healthy by avoiding areas where these sick people are.

SickWeather uses an advanced algorithm to check status updates and posts on Facebook and Twitter for any mention of an illness. The app will take note of the sick user’s location and indicate where they are on a map. It’s like a weather map of where the sick people are located instead of, well, the actual weather. It can even show the movement of outbreaks over time.

Areas where sick people can be found are designated as sick zones. Users can also choose to search the map by illness, ie. the flu, chicken pox, or the common cold. There’s no mention of zombie outbreaks on the list though. You can also set the app to alert you automatically to specific ailments.

SickWeather is available as both a website and as a freeĀ iOS mobile app.
