Map Overlay Relocates Gulf Oil Spill to Any Location

Update: Other maps of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill available here

As the Deep Horizon Gulf Oil Spill continues to get worse both in oil leaked and damages down to the coastline, it is hard to truly understand how big the disaster actually is.. Fortunately, there is an online Google Maps mashup, In Perspective: Visualizing the BP Oil Disaster, which overlays the spill to any chosen location. Locating at the spill centered over places like New York City, Washington D.C., Brussels, Los Angeles, Toronto, or London allowed me to fully comprehend just how big it is.
