Iraqi Civilian Deaths on Google Maps

Map of Iraqi Civilian Deaths on Familiar Locations

Mike Brennan has used the WikiLeaks Iraq War Logs to create a Google Map of civilian deaths in Iraq over a five year period.

The map uses the WikiLeaks data and Fusion Tables to show you the location of all the civilian deaths in Iraq. To help users get a little more perspective of what 65,649 deaths looks like you can overlay the data on maps of cities that you are familiar with.

For example, if you click on the New York City link you can view the same data transposed to the Big Apple:

The full list of cities that you can overlay the data on is: New York City, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago.
