Tracking Hurricane Rita, Part Two

Directions has compiled a page of links to U.S. government maps related to Hurricane Rita; this will be updated as new information becomes available, they say.

James Fee, in re ESRI helping various government agencies: “It seems that everyone has learned much about what happened after the devastation of Katrina and I think everyone is being proactive with Rita. … The infrastructure is already in place thanks to Katrina, so we’ll just add the appropriate links as they come in.”

This map plots Hurricane Rita’s path against the positions of all the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico (there’s also a layer showing Katrina’s path). Now you know why hurricanes disrupt oil production. Via Cartography.
