Levels of flooding

Fished out from Bruce Sterling's blog at Wired, this link shows changing maps of the world as water levels increases:

It seems more than just inspired by Google Maps.

Interesting. Time to dig out that old Miura map that Ashinano-sensei did and see how close he got it.

Also, it is more than inspired by Google Maps: It *uses* Google Maps.

Does that mean it can be combined with your YKK mapping project system?

That would be truly Web 2.0 style.

It sure is a tempting idea. I'm not sure if it's feasible to do, but as soon as I have some free time I will definitely have to look into it.

Splendid work!

And it is interesting to see how well it matches with the flooding. I guess this is based on the default 7 meters of increased water level.

I can't see any difference between the 0 m and the 14 m. Maybe I just need my eyes checked.
