This week’s web Wandering Wednesday is focusing in on a few maps that track diseases:
Google Flu Trends: Google tracks who is searching for information about the flu and then maps that information to estimate where the flu is hitting around the world. Click on the United States and you can see more information about each state.
Health Map – health map brings together information from various resources to try to pinpoint outbreaks of infectious diseases around the world. You can hover your mouse over a pin on the map and see what disease is currently affecting the area and any relevant information on it including links to the sources of the information.
