Volcanic Ash Cloud Maps

Over the past week, everybody has been talking about the extraordinary impact of the Icelandic volcano eruption. Indeed, the volcanic ash cloud has halted air traffic all over Europe and made airspace across much of Europe a no-fly zone. The cloud has paralyzed air cargo delivery and disrupted business and leisure travel. Air travel disruption costs airlines about $200 million a day. Not surprisingly, the event has been widely mapped.

Volcanic Ash Cloud Maps
One of the first maps on the subject is the Mibazaar's Flight Delay Tweet Map http://www.mibazaar.com/euroflights.html showing the latest tweets from Europe and the Eastern USA that mention 'volcano' or 'ash'.
The map is centered on the latest tweets on the subject. And you can easily see the ash cloud related news appear in different parts of the map.

The Radar Virtuel plane tracking website http://www.radarvirtuel.com/ allows to watch the ash cloud directly on the Google Map. So, you can see the current location of the cloud (Central Europe at the present time) and follow its future direction changes.

We hope your vacation or business trip has not been cancelled due to this annoying cloud!
