Google mapping the San Francisco Bay Oil Spill

A post by James DeBoer over on the Google Lat Long Blog reveals an interesting "News Map" created by the team at the San Francisco Chronicle using Google Maps maps creation tools. The map is a very interesting way to explore the effects of the recent San Francisco Bay Oil Spill using videos, photos and news reports. I've decided to embed the map in this post (Also find the map here):

James points to another map created by a local SF TV station that shows how far the oil has spread in and around the area:

Meanwhile, in another post, Cathy Tang informs us that it's
Geography Awareness Week! :)
