This week Google Maps Mania has spent a lot of time reporting on Google Maps produced in response to the flooding in Australia. The most informative map was produced by the Google Crisis Response team but the map with the most emotional impact has to be Panedia's map of 40 panoramic images of the flooding in Brisbane.
Meanwhile the New York Times took time out to acknowledge the anniversary of the Chilean earthquake with a visualisation of satellite images taken before and after the quakes.
