Here‘s a pretty good map of Ebola cases throughout Africa that I just came across. It was created using Ersi Story Maps software and what makes it useful is its simple and straightforward design, which allows the user to run through a timeline of known Ebola cases while the map zooms in to show their location. It would have been nice if the creator had included more information on each outbreak (such as which species it was and a little bit of background on the outbreak), but it’s still a very useful representation of Ebola’s spatial distribution in Africa.
