start-upave believe that people make better decisions if they have quick and simple access to the data they need, at the time they need it. With the catastrophic events of recent natural disasters, the Brainnwave team decided to down tools and see what they could do to help. Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Irma across the Caribbean and Florida, and the earthquake that struck off the southern coast of Mexico have all left communities grieving for lost relatives and in need of urgent support to rebuild the vital infrastructure of their towns and cities. In an effort to make this process move as smoothly and quickly as possible, the Edinburgh-based startup has added all the relevant datasets, sourced by the World-wide Human Geography Data Working Group to their Marketplace website from where they can be freely downloaded and used.
