Poynter Online Amy Gahran points out a number of excellent news maps in this post.
- Elephant Wars, a multimedia-laden Google Earth map from National Geographic
- Bakersfield.com Maps (Amy’s favorites: Bakersfield Quirks, Bakersfield’s Future Highways, and Pete Tittl’s Restaurant Picks )
- TribTowns from the Salt Lake Tribune, an effort to geolocate news, sports and entertainment coverage
- Katrina maps from the New Orleans Times Picayune, including ones on coastal erosion, the rebuilding effort and how the city actually flooded during Katrina
