The latest strain of avian influenza or bird flu, known as H5N1, seems to be making its way axross Asia to Europe and, quite likely, beyond. A number of maps depicting this progress are available on the Internet. Recombinomics has a few maps, one for May and every month after that. October’s map shows all the cases to date. Unfortunately, their base map is just horrible. Better to visit the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization for bi-weekly maps - still, not the best maps (incomplete base maps, unprojected maps, etc.) but better. The UN’s ReliefWeb site has a much improved map showing bird flu outbreaks, but it is dated July 25, 2005. More is likely to come.
