African Conflicts on Google Maps
The Map of Conflict in Africa is a Fusion Tables driven Google Map of all African conflicts between 1997 and 2010.
The article accompanying the map includes a link to the Google Fusion Table holding the data so it is possible to access the table and create a heat map of the conflicts. The developer, Zachary M. Jones, also says he is working on "producing a map that will sequentially display data points (a subset of the ones shown here) by conflict and over time."
It would also be great if conflicts post 2010 were added, obviously the map at the moment doesn't include conflicts arising out of the Arab Spring.
