Katrina Information Map

An amazing use of technology in the face of disaster is . This is a resource where people can report and find damage assessments on a Google Map. Scipionus is a "wiki", a collaborative page which has created a document of incredible detail regarding the condition of the gulf coast. Click on one of the hundreds of red balloons for site specific information. A wonderful application. Kudos to its 24 year old creator, Jonathan Mendez, a computer programmer living in Austin, Texas.
