The Maps of War web site is a collection of some of the best multimedia war maps on the web. The topics listed include Iraq, World War I, World War II, Darfur, Israel, terrorism, crime, and migration. I also found maps on some other topics (e.g., democracy and strength—or lack thereof—of other countries). These maps have been created by MSNBC, the BBC, and other producers.
What is amazing when viewing these maps is watching in just a few minutes the effects of years of human activities on countries, lands, and peoples.
The maps available at this web site include:
- Iraq War Coalition Fatalities,
- The Fight for Iraq: A Regional Powerplay,
- Baghdad: Mapping the Violence,
- The Western Front, 1914 – 1918,
- World War II in Europe,
- World War II in the Pacific,
- The Darfur Tragedy,
- Eyes on Darfur,
- Strategic Israel,
- Failed States Index,
- War on Crime : The Homicide Map, and
- Snapshot: Global Migration.
Cell Biology Animation… and other multimedia
John Kyrk is “a biologist by education and an artist by disposition.” He has created and posted on this web site animations of biological processes. The animations are a combination of graphics and text that together explain the process being described. They are very well done.
The cell biology animations include:
- amino acids and protein,
- cell function overview,
- cell anatomy,
- cell membranes,
- chromosome structure,
- DNA: structure, replication, transcription, and translation,
- golgi apparatus,
- krebs citric acid cycle,
- mitochondria/electron transport,
- photosynthesis: light reactions and dark reactions, and
