[prMac.com] Falls Church, Virginia - MapItApps, a Falls Church, VA. software startup, has developed a new program, "H1N1 Map - Outbreaks Near You", to track specific locations of epidemic H1N1 outbreaks, also known as swine flu. This revolutionary tool has five key features which will help people around the world to be more socially aware of the locations hardest hit by the H1N1 virus, allowing businesses, travelers and families alike to avoid these potentially deadly areas. These tools provide the ability to:
* Map the location of ~30,000 reported outbreaks (Red Pins)
* Map the location of reported fatalities (Purple Pins)
* Map all address stored on users contacts/address book; showing the proximity of outbreaks to their friends and family (Green Pins)
* Notify users of new outbreaks within this defined zone such as their home, work or a school
* Allows users to submit unreported outbreaks directly from their mobile device
To compile and analyze web and print based reports, MapItApps utilizes a leading medical laboratory that provides daily, and soon to be, hourly updates. Valid user submitted reports are available on a near instantaneous basis. While print and web data is invaluable to us, MapItApps is extremely focused on expanding user submitted data, the type of data that is most useful to the public.
As the H1N1 pandemic continues virtually unabated, the world has become saturated with information about the deadly disease; even the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization are having difficulty accurately characterizing the scope and magnitude of this quickly spreading virus. But this new tracking tool from MapItApps has the ability to focus the vital data which is most important to our world-wide base of customers. We are confident that iPhone and Android users will greatly benefit from this comprehensive tool as we try to mitigate the effects of H1N1.
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
H1N1 Map - Outbreaks Near You 2.2 is only $2.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Medical category.
