London’s Daily Mail recently reported the development of a crowd-sourced GPS tracking software application which utilizes the data from thousands of participating cell phones to potentially predict earthquake.  The GPS software works by tracking changes in ground movement across a broad area. Researchers say that the application requires only a small percentage of a metropolitan area’s citizens in order to be effective, and would prove effective in providing an an advance warning system for earthquakes.
