Jeffrey Yoo Warren has taken it upon himself to map and understand the enormity of the Gulf oil spill. Warren is involved with mapping the spill's vastness. The project was launched on the Kickstarter crowd-funding platform, has reached its objective and will be funded.

For Jeffrey Yoo Warren, mapping the oil spill is something that anyone can get involved with, but if they can not actually make their way down to the Gulf, they are encouraged to donate to his project so that they will have all the necessary resources.

For Jeffrey Yoo Warren, the project is a reaction to what he calls a media blackout over the continued effects of the Gulf oil spill. The project is a great example of technology and civic initiative coming together.
