Cool as the tool might be, its purpose is to help the viewer understand the depth and breadth of the devastation in Haiti. Driven to make that destruction clear to readers, the folks at the NYTimes have come up with yet another way to do it.

Before and After in Haiti
The work that people do at the New York Times continues always to impress me, and then to offer it up without charging for it to guys like me who never touched the New York Times 10-15 years ago . . . that's very cool. Today's amazing thing is a collection of before and after photos of downtown Port-au-Prince with a sliding bar that allows the viewer to control the overlapping photos. It's here: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/01/14/world/20100114-haiti-imagery.html.
