An Interactive Map That Tracks Environmental Incidents
Non-profit and environmental-monitoring group SkyTruth launched a web-based alert system that provides daily updates of environmentally-significant incidents, such as water and air pollution, and oil spills.
On the site, details about the incidents would be provided—such as time, date, location, incident type, suspected responsible party, satellite images, aerial photography, investigations, analysis and data reports.
Users can browse and find out about recent incidents on the map or Google Earth, and subscribe to personalized RSS feeds or emails to get updates on the incidents.
