Latest updates

Major refresh (10/18/2018)

PlaneCrashMap now has an updated look and feel! I've kept he same basic design and theme, but with some updated functionality:

  • Updated Google Maps interface
  • Sort any table by clicking on the column name
  • Cleaner design
Dozens of other fixes should make the site more usable, especially on mobile.

Another major update is coming soon, with plenty of new data and additional details for existing crashes!

Minor refresh (10/5/2011)

I have been busy with other things for almost a year now, and have neglected updates. I apologize to the people that have emailed me- updating the data has taken much longer than I anticipated.

Today I updated the appearance of several pages, with a goal of getting you to the information that you are looking for faster. Many pages have had more links added, and I have enlarged the map on the main page. Tables on list pages now allow for sorting and searching; I hope this makes the site much more usable. Loading time may be significantly reduced on many pages, but I'm still working on that.

Another project: (11/6/2010)

For a while, I have been looking at putting information from other Goverment databases on a map. I found the USGS (US Geological Survey) MRDS (Mineral Resource Data System) database online. It has information not just mines, but processing facilities, historical mines and prospects, and other things from all around the world. The database has information on over 300,000 sites around the world. I've put it on a map, similar to PlaneCrashMap here, and have used what I've learned on this site to make it more easy to use and quicker, despite the larger data source used.

I'm hoping to update with some of the features of the new site, including a map that loads data when you scroll, instead of having to navigate to a different states' map. I don't have an ETA for these changes, but would expect them at the beginning of next year.
