Google Earth: Oil Spill in Gulf Of Mexico covers New York

For those of you who are seeking the exact scale of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a very useful visualization tool for Google Earth has been released, allowing you to compare the scale of the spill with some of the major cities in the world.

As reported from the GEarthBlog, the tool comes to us courtesy of developer Paul Rademacher. If you head over to this website here, you’ll be able to find a list of links which compare the scale of the oil spill with cities such as New York, London, Rome and San Francisco.

All you need to do is install the Google Earth Plug-In to your browser, which only takes a few minutes. Once you are able to view the links on Google Earth, you’ll see the surprising results of this oil spill – did you think it would cover the whole area of Manhattan or London? – we didn’t!

Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think of it.
