Mapping the Current Conflict in the Gaza Strip

Sometimes maps can clarify a situation much more than the narrative attempting to explain it. The maps created by UNOSAT illustrating the current Israeli/Hamas conflict in Gaza are an example. Read about it here in a Harvard Middle East blog and here in Ogle Earth. Stephan even went so far as to digitize the PDF of the UNOSAT map and georectify it in Google Earth. Well done! Here is his KML of the above map. Check back to the UNOSAT site for updated maps. The current maps goes to Dec 31, 2008.

Thanks, Ogle Earth.
