Australian, Canadian, and New Zealander Naval Deployments Maps

After the popular British Royal Navy deployment map I have researched and found deployment maps for the Australian Royal Navy, Canadian Forces Maritime Command (also known as the Canadian Navy), and the Royal New Zealand Navy. Australia's navy uses a simple Google Map mash-up, Canada sadly has a static map with which one unfortunately has to click on other maps to see current and past information, while New Zealand uses a Google Maps mash-up as a platform to build off of and improve the presentation.

Both Australia and New Zealand are focusing most of their efforts on their coasts and Oceania. The two exceptions are Australia's anti-Somali piracy operations and New Zealand's activities around the Korean Peninsula. Canada is more like the British Royal Navy in that it has played a more worldly role.
