This is also not the prettiest map i have ever seen, however this Truth Laid Bear Crisis in the Middle East: Mapping the Conflict is loaded with information from the Grassroots - bloggers, coders, geeks, and hacktivists. It is loaded with content from numerous points of view, whereas most of the other maps found so far are from newswires, individuals or particular organizations. The mashup was collectively created by the following:
- Feedzilla.com for supplying news feeds!
- The bloggers assisting in the gathering and categorization of blogs and news for this section: AbbaGav, Alone in Public, Banter In Atlanter, Customerservant.com, Late At Night, Pierre Legrand’s Pink Flamingo Bar, Soccer Dad, sisu
- Mike Williams for his outstanding Google Maps API tutorial and fine pushpin icons. Mike’s preferred charity is his church’s Business For Life program, which which helps people in third world countries to help themselves by providing an individual with a grant to start up their own business. Drop by and make a donation!
- Dynamicdrive.com for the spiffy "link floatie" function which I’ve used for popping up info windows
- Andre Lewis for the the Gzoom control which provides the click-and-drag-a-rectangle-to-zoom function
- Tom Mangan for his TLabel extension for adding labels to the map
