I thought that it would only be a matter of time before someone used the MIT Simile Timeline and Google Maps to map the 75,000 US military reports covering the war in Afghanistan that were released by WikiLeaks. I even considered having a go myself but the sheer number of reports dissuaded me.
The Motion Média team has obviously spent a few hours putting this together so that you can navigate the WikiLeak documents by time and by location.
The map does carry a warning that it can only be viewed in FireFox.
