Declan Butler, Arc2Earth & H5N1

Nature reporter Declan Butler, who beta-tested Arc2Earth, shows off some of the projects he built using the application. They include the much-lauded avian flu map, which Declan writes will get an update once he’s done with his day job:-)

H5N1 has reached Sweden in the meantime. The birds were found in a very specific area — in an inlet near the Oskarshamn nuclear power plant, conveniently in high res in Google Earth and pre-cordoned off. I’m sure it won’t be the last case, though.
