Swine Flu Maps Roundup

The recent outbreak of Google Maps Mashups of the Swine Flu epidemic shows no sign of abating. Instead of writing a new post every day (there have been four posts on Swine Flu already this week) I have decided that new maps on this subject will now just be added to this 'roundup' post.

Washington Post Distribution of Cases Map

The Washington Post has used the Google Maps Flash API to produce this map that is tracking the distribution of Swine Flu (H1N1) cases around the world. The map shows confirmed cases in red and suspected cases in black.

To learn more about cases at each location click on the map markers. The map uses marker clustering, therefore more individual cases will appear as you zoom in on a location. The Washington Post map also includes a number of buttons which will zoom the map to different countries around the world.
