The oil spill on Flickr

June 10, 2010 § Leave a comment

BP has done one thing right. They host high-resolution photographs and diagrams of their plans for stopping the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on a Flickr Pro account, which allows them to display images as large as 20 megabytes. (When you go to the Flickr site, choose “original” size to get the full-resolution image.)

The Deepwater Horizon response page is here: http://www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com/go/site/2931/

And their Flickr page is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/deepwaterhorizonresponse/

These files have served as the base material for numerous news information graphics. Below are some examples from the Wall Street Journal:
