A new app tracks where the oil was — and still is — from the Gulf Coast oil spill.

Oil Reporter relies on crowdsourcing for its data. Users can upload photos and videos and report oil and wildlife sightings.

Jonathan Nelson, marketing director for Intridea, joined DorobekINSIDER to discuss the development of the Oil Reporter app.
