Theres a free app – Slick View – to be released in the next few days for smartphones that people can use to help document the oil spill’s effects on the coastline. It was created by the San Diego State University Visualization Center and Crisis Commons (an online community that uses technology to respond to crises). Users take pictures of the coast, the photo are sent back to SDSU with a time stamp and a GPS location attached. Then all the images are processed and pieced together to form a map of the coast along the Gulf of Mexico, which will be available to the public, showing the changes along the coast over time.
