Microsoft Virtual Earth fans decided to map the Swine Flu outbreak, so here’re couple of apps using Virtual Earth to visualize the outbreak (2009 Swine Flu H1N1 Outbreak and Migration Map):
– Live Search Maps has a collection highlighting reported cases (both confirmed and unconfirmed) and the routes they traveled between home and vacation / business where they apparently contracted the strain.
– UMapper built out a version of the swine flu data which overlays raster tiles on Virtual Earth and renders it through a Flash interface. Bo Zhao, a University of Florida student, build out a sweet UMapper Swine Flu mashup on Geoinformatics.cn in Flash.
