tracking hurricanes

This just went out yesterday, our new Hurricane Tracker for MSNBC:

I'm so impressed with the work, co-created by Tom and Geraldine with raw data licensed from Hurricane Mapping. They're evacuating New Orleans right now, I hope the reaction to this storm isn't as tragically bungled as the last one.

  3. Fascinating. As a next step, you ought to add something to overlay information about previous hurricanes as well (eg, many people are comparing (knee-jerk reaction) Gustav to Katrina, but it appears Gustav lost most of its energy in the middle of the gulf. It would be interesting to see how the two actually compare. -Brian
