The popular GPS navigation app Waze played a key role in helping Floridians find shelter when Hurricane Irma hit last fall, a top executive with the company told a Tampa audience on Wednesday.

Using community-supplied data, Waze also was behind optimizing the traffic during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and during Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia in 2015, said Aron Di Castro, head of global partnerships and business development at Waze. He spoke at Innovation Fusion, a showcase event for the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator, held Wednesday in Tampa.

Innovation Fusion highlighted this year’s group of eight Israeli companies taking part in FIBA’s 2018 program, designed to help the tech startups find partnerships and collaborations with U.S.-based and local companies.
