• Maps and information on U.S. fatalities as a result of our latest empire-building venture at Iraq Coalition Casualty Count (scroll way down for map options by city or state). Arguably a map of casualties per capita in each state might add some useful information.
  • Where your tax dollars for torture went, as documented by this Le Monde map of CIA rendition flights (in French) and on an LA billboard, of all places.  (Hat tips to Planetizen and The Map Room respectively.)

 

  • Subtopia‘s “Guide to Military Urbanism” has a collection including maps of war profiteers and patterns of “incarceration and return” in New York.  (Hat tip to 3 Quarks Daily.)

 

  • Where do flickr.com photos come from? The Map Room links to a “choropleth” map of same; for full functionality, use GoogleEarth, but you can just look at what’s on the page too. Also check this story out — it is definitely possible to create a map that’s too good for government work. Temple University did it.
