Google Maps and Disasters

With wild fires ravaging Malibu and San Diego County, California, The Los Angeles Daily News is putting Google Maps to good use, communicating information to the public. It's extremely quick and easy for anyone to create maps like this, and as Google adds more parts of the world to its map database, Google Maps could be a valuable planning and information tool for humanitarian organizations during disasters.

10/23/07 Update: Radio station KPBS has an even better implemented Google Map.
