Mapping the Syrian Civil War
The @deSyracuse Syria Civil War map is a fairly regularly updated map of developments in war torn Syria.
The map doesn't claim to be '100% accurate' but it does provide an overview of the position inside Syria and the reactions of its immediate neighbors. The map includes a number of overlays which attempt to show government controlled areas, areas controlled by Isis and by the Kurds.
A number of map markers also provide updates on recent major events in the country. Markers in the neighboring countries provide a general overview of whether the country governments are in support of the Syrian government or in favor of the rebels.
