In Their Honour Google Map

In Their Honour

This Google Maps mashup uses the records of 100,000 Australian service men and women and shows the 5,000 cemeteries around the world where they are buried. The map uses data with the permission of The Commonwealth War Grave Commision.

The site uses Google Maps to show all of the records on one map. Alternatively it is possible to search for a particular service man or woman and view their individual records.

The site also contains a Google Map of photographs. This map is uses to record user contributions, personal histories and historical events. The map uses the Simile Time-Line so that it is possible to search the map by date.
