Mapping History

See the flow of modern migration patterns. Or hear the rattle of gunfire as a map of Iraq is peppered with blood-red holes, each one symbolizing a coalition fatality (pressing the red button feels distressingly complicitous).  Maps of War collates maps that also visualize the March of Democracy and The Western Front, 1914 – 1918, and a demographically searchable LA homicide map. Each map represents the data in a different way – using animation, high-definition satellite images or interactivity – much more compelling than a history book.
