Map The Fallen

In relation to Memorial Day, this is about the blog of the creator of Map The Fallen, a Google Earth Map that visually conveys the casualties of war that the US has incurred in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are over 5,700 deaths recorded, and most of them have information on their locations and dates as well. You can also see the casualties’ life stories condensed into a few paragraphs. The project is interesting and obviously took a long time, so check it out by visiting mapthefallen.org and reading more about it. To see the project in action, click the download button (it’s on the right side of the page when you follow the link) and open the file in Google Earth.
