Mapping Top Secret America
The Washington Post has used the Google Maps API to map the rise of domestic counter-terrorism organizations in the United States since 9/11.
The Top Secret America map allows users to search for counter-terrorism organizations by address, by the type of organization, by jurisdiction and by whether the organization was established before or after 9/11. A bar chart beneath the map also shows the number of organizations established in each state.
The map shows both government organizations and private-sector companies that do domestic counter-terrorism and top-secret work.
