From NYT: Using Crowds, and GPS, to Chart Roadkill

While Mr. Ringen's friends goad him with nicknames like "Doctor Roadkill," he is not alone in his peculiar pursuit. Hundreds of volunteers collect and upload roadkill data to the California Roadkill Observation System, a mapping Web site built by researchers at the University of California, Davis, to better understand where and why cars strike animals.

I want an app that will help me avoid pre-roadkill. So if someone sees a deer by the side of the road, they can press a button (not fiddle with their phone and go to a website and click on something while driving); and I will get a warning that there's a deer by the side of the road.
