People can then go online and check if it's safe to travel where they want to go.

That kind of technology processing is on the rise (Big Data), and is essentially the incoming rising wave that is going to float all boats in our economy again.
Algorithms kick ass, they're scary. We've been working on one to predict ied's for our troops in Iraq. I'm waiting for the Damn thing to become self aware.
