Nato attacks on Libya mapped

Libya Nato air strikes map from the Guardian
In its ongoing data journalism drive, the Guardian seems to publish a new map mash-up just about every day. Today’s is an interactive time-line of NATO air strikes on Libya since Operation Unified Protector started on March 31.  With details drawn from NATO’s daily situation reports.

Cities where attacks have occurred are marked with miniature pie charts, providing a breakdown of the type s of targets hit each day – Anti aircraft facility, bunkers, Communications, Rocket launchers, Tanks, Ammo dumps, Helicopters. You can view these as either daily or cummulative totals. Since the campaign started this adds up to 800 targets hit in 3,000 strike sorties

Apparently the map will be updated with new information on a daily basis.
