Deepwater Horizon Trajectory Maps: By Date

On this page, you can view or download the trajectory maps produced by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) during the response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010. These maps are grouped by date. All of the trajectory maps are provided as Portable Document Format (PDF) files, ranging in size from 200 KB to 10 MB; however, most are 2-3 MB.

Interpreting the Maps: A Legend [opens in new tab] is provided to explain the different types of trajectory maps produced during this spill. The map types are more fully described on the Trajectory Map Background page. Also available on that page are publications we created to help you understand and interpret the oil trajectory maps.
