Mapping the Grassy Knoll

John F. Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago in Dallas, Texas.  ESRI has put together a 3d map of Dealey Plaza in Dallas, that should keep conspiracy theorists busy for the next 50 years.

JFinteraKtif includes 3d buildings, the route of the president's car, the Grassy Knoll, the trajectory of the bullets fired from the sixth floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building and even the trajectories of some of the conspiracy theory shootings.

The map was created using information from key witness statements and is overlaid with photographs taken at the time. Links below the map allow the user to view the map from the point of view of key positions (e.g. from the position of the Grassy Knoll).
