Haiti Project?

I thought of another interesting project… I know the earthquake was a big deal and they will need help for days to come, but I think it would be good to reflect on a positive. Do a data viz of the survivors, maybe the statistics of them (sex, age, race, resident/visitor). Show a map of the city, where they were found on what day after the quake, under how much rubble. I’m not sure if I could get any of this information but I have found a list of survivors on a website here.

The ICRC also has a list of people where people can add (for missing persons) or update (to let families know they are alive). This site is more detailed with information about the people including sex, DOB, birth place, and fathers name.

CNN has an ireport that allows family members to record a video or post a picture looking for loved ones.
