37 Years of Oil Spills on Google Maps

Global News has created a Google Map showing 37 years of Oils Spoils in Alberta. Alberta has had an incredible average of two crude oil spills a day, every day for the past 37 years.

The Global News Google Map provides information on every spill of crude oil, crude bitumen and synthetic crude since 1975. The map uses markers whose size reflect the volume of crude spilled at each location. If you click on a marker you can view details about all the spills at that location (many locations have had more than one spill).
