Daily Graphic: BP Oil Spill Tracker from NYT
As usual, the New York Times’ interactive maps rule. You can visit the Times’ oil spill tracking map here. Check out the “play” feature at the upper left portion of the map to see the oil spill grow and move over time.
There are also tabs at the top of the map to change the data shown. For instance, you can see a plot of the effects of the spill on wildlife.
