Nature Magazine’s Avian Flu Outbreak Map

Avian Flu outbreak map in Google EarthNature Magazine’s Senior Reporter Declan Butler has thoroughly researched the Avian Flu outbreak information and has published the confirmed cases of Avian Flu in a Google Earth file. His avian outbreak map includes Human cases, and a time series of placemarks showing the progression of the flu over the last 18 months. Here is Declan’s web page describing his outbreak map and the background information on the data provided.
About two weeks ago I published a similar outbreak map. The older one is based on various reported cases, but not all confirmed, and is not as complete. I recommend Declan Butler’s outbreak map for accuracy.
