    Mapping the Outbreak of Swine Flue and Latest News?

    UMapper has created a great heatmap based on Virtual Earth to visualize the outbreak of Swine Flue. This map is being updated several times a day using a variety of sources.

    The BBC provides also a great website where you find video- and audio-files as well as well as reports and comments from those who have been affected:

    Re: Mapping the Outbreak of Swine Flue and Latest News?

    This is the other UMapper heat map - the inferior one to the one that Chris Pendlton posted.

    When I first saw it, the colors were very washed out - Europe merged in with the natural yellows Africa. This has been improved (possibly due to more cases). However it still shows many of the failings of heat maps - so how many cases are there? How spread out are they?

    Bo Zhao's heat map (see Chris Pendleton's post) is much better.
