Interactive Salmonella

One of the journalism classes I am taking this semester is "Convergence Reporting". I am excited to learn the basics of video editing and voice recording, but I am mostly looking forward to developing interactive animations. It’s a cool way to tell news.

The Sacramento Bee published an interactive map reporting numbers on Salmonella infections in California, including those from the recent outbreak (special thanks to Skyler for sharing).

The CDC website has a map displaying numbers of Salmonella infections by state, but it’s not interactive. It was updated last Wednesday so it doesn’t include the 7th death related to the outbreak reported this morning.

Surfing on the web I found a pretty cool "Global Disease Alert" map. If anyone out there has something interesting, please post here.
