New, better organized Data page, new maps

A new map is up as of a couple days ago which you might not have seen:

This is before oil hits, but look at the notes on Flickr, there's a BP
station in the map, booms at the end of the pier (NOAA imagery isn't good
enough to show that) and of course a Waffle House:

This and all our other maps are now online at a shiny new page:

There's also a new way to contribute to the project: it's called MapMill, and it's basically a Hot or Not for our oil spill imagery. We spend a lot of time sorting through imagery to find good, clear, straight-down images, and we're asking everyone to chip in a bit of their time to speed this process up:

Best,
