A team of developers at George Mason University's Center for History and New Media has created a unique Google Map that will help to preserve the historical events of this summer's Gulf Coast hurricanes. The Hurricane Digital Memory Bank acts an interactive map-based explorer to the stories, images and memories of the 2005 hurricane season in the Gulf Coast. More from the website:
"..The Hurricane Digital Memory Bank will help historians and archivists collect, preserve, and write the history of this devastating hurricane season. It also seeks to foster some positive legacies by allowing the people affected by these storms to tell their stories, which will become part of the historical record and remain accessible for a wide audience for generations to come."
