Sri Lankan-Tamil Tiger War Map

Wars have a way of bringing out the (neo)geographers in everyone. The Russian-Georgian War inspired me to create Google Map of the war's progress while Al Jezeera took the lead for the 2008-09 Israeli-Hamas War and asked viewers for on the ground intelligence.

Now we have a government getting involved. The Ministry of Defence, Public Security, Law & Order of Sri Lanka has created the Battle Progress Map showing the probable final fall of the Tamil Tigers (Hat tip: La Cartoteca). The map is a fine piece of work featuring toggable layers, fancy graphics, photographs and videos, and time lapses of the war's shift into the end game.
