GIS and Gaza Conflict

Alongside with the latest news on the Conflict in Gaza, a new and interesting way to show the latest events in the zone is to use Google Maps, and Map Mashups. Here are some examples:




They are all good examples about how to use the latest web 2.0 technologies, integrating not only different sources of information but also different types of technologies, such as Google Map, YouTube or KML files.

For example, if you have Google Earth installed in your computer, you can add this file, to get almost daily up-to-date maps about damages in buildings, casualties, of humanitarian deliveries.

Obviously, do not expect to have Street Map View in this area. Hopefully, in a paceful future...
