The Public Lab nonprofit has created this wiki page and will add information on the Shell spill in the Gulf of Mexico as it becomes available. Public Lab is part of the Gulf Monitoring Consortium, an alliance launched after the BP Disaster of 2010. Members and partners of the Consortium have been posting information, and we will be linking to those resources and updating this page in the weeks ahead.

Currently, the spill is located 97 miles off the shore of Louisiana. Public Lab has not identified an application of our particular tools and methods of aerial mapping. As the situation develops, we remain open to contact from groups needing assistance. And we leave this page open for updates on the situation from citizen scientists and community members.
