Hurricane mapping – Googlized Innovation

Paul, · Categories: General, Information Commons

Possibly the best hurricane tracking and mapping is done using the Google Maps interface. This one is at FLHurricane.com.

This is a great example of innovation made possible through openness. More about opening for innovation is laid out by Eric Von Hippel in his Democratizing Innovation.

While wikipedia isn’t using Google Maps, it’s one of the best places for breaking news on the hurricane.
