MSN’s Katrina Flyover Offers Many Before-And-After Views Of New Orleans


Katrina Flyover
is a new MSN Virtual Earth-powered service that lets you
click on camera icons scatted throughout New Orleans to get a birds-eye,
before-and-after view of the city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

I found it a bit buggy, especially in Firefox, where I
couldn’t get the "after" images to load and the "before" images didn’t fill the
window properly. It didn’t work at first with Internet Explorer, but after
reloading, I got along fine.

There’s lot and lots to explore. It would be easier if
you could see the camera icons when zoomed out just a bit beyond the default
level, but you can’t. So be sure to scroll around the screen once you see the
camera icons, to see just how many points have been mapped.

Chris Pirillo gives some background info

on the project, which was captured by planes last week. Robert Scoble
points to
this brief
mention
of the project by one of the developers involved. Robin Good has an
excellent review with screenshots and background information
