Tracking The Homeless With GPS

I'll let you guys decide whether this story is a good idea or technology gone wrong.

According to CityLab and The Copenhagen Post, Odense has launched a small pilot program tracking 20 volunteers to gather data on where the homeless eat, sleep, and live all by just the GPS in their pocket. Once they have a good idea where many of its destitute are gathering, the city can provide shelters, benches, and "coffee rooms" to specific sites where they're needed most.
