Military maps to focus on natural disasters

US: The Pentagon agency is planning to create a global geographic intelligence database that can anticipate future world trouble spots and humanitarian crises. The agency plans to do so by combining detailed mapping with information about trends, demographics and weather patterns in those areas.

This will enable the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to pick a spot on the map and determine the likelihood of a natural disaster in that area. It was also help in determining how to provide aid in that area.
