Scientists working with Flowminder can adjust their research to better fit people's needs,
Bengtsson says. Flowminder researchers collaborated with a Nepali mobile-phone operator to
map how people moved around after the 2015 earthquake, producing data that were useful to
relief organizations. In turn, the work led to a publication for the researchers (R. Wilson et al.
PLoS Curr. Disasters http://doi.org/brbp; 2016).
