Imagery from the Oil Slick in the Gulf of Mexico on Bing Maps

NASA released MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) imagery from the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. Using MapCruncher it was just a few mouse-clicks to create a Bing Maps tile-layer and within minutes the data is published on Windows Azure.

You can find it here on Bing Maps.


Tip: if you don’t want to crunch the whole satellite image but only a part of it you can simply drag the edges of the blue frame around the image to the region that you would like to use.
