African Elephant Populations on Google Maps


The Save the Elephants charity has created the Elephants in Peril website with the help of a Google Earth Outreach Development Grant.

The website includes two Google Maps to show the location of where elephants are being illegally killed in Africa and the current African elephant population density. The maps were created with the help of Fusion Tables and Google Maps Engine.

By creating and maintaining these two maps Elephants in Peril hope to bring together public data sets and to reveal the complete story of elephant populations over time and understand what trends can be seen.
