Tracking Swine

or rather, Swine Flu.

Over the weekend, an increase in report of locations that recorded incidences of people afflicted with Swine Flu kept pouring in.

In an attempt to visualize this information, a mashup of report of cases on Twitter and Google Earth has been created at this link.

It’s scary to hear the reports of locations as they come through.  It’s also scary to see the locations which originally reported in from Mexico City.

However, real time marking of this information is indeed possible with these tools.
