Texas Wildfires on Google Maps
It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Google Crisis Response team. First there was Hurricane Irene, then the Vermont Flooding and now we have the Texas wildfires.
The Google Crisis Response: Texas Wildfires Map uses data from the Texas Forest Service to plot the location of active fires in the state. The map also allows you to view recent MODIS satellite imagery of the affected area and to view the locations of Red Cross national shelters.
