Cicada Magic on the Geoweb

Report this year's cicada sitings at and have your siting posted to a Google map. Do you love or hate the sound of cicadas during those select years in the dead of summer? If you hear or see them, you can report them. This website does an excellent job of incorporating user generated content (UGC) into an easy to navigate and figure out, mash up. The form to fill out reporting the cicadas is clear and concise.

This is a National Geographic sponsored project created and maintained by John Cooley at Yale.
