Libya War Maps: Second Batch

I will continue to try to collect Libyan War Maps of Operation Odyssey Dawn and the actual war on the ground.  If you know of any good maps please comment!

Libyan War Maps:  The First Batch
Libyan War Maps:   The Third Batch 
Libyan War Maps:  The Fourth Batch
Libyan War Maps: The Fifth Batch - The Geography of Oil
Libyan War Maps:  The Sixth Post - The Coalition's Size
Libya War Maps: The Seventh Post - The Invasion of Tripoli
Libya War Maps: The Eighth Post - More Battle of Tripoli Maps

Le Monde has a map of troop movements, air strikes, and refugee flows.  However, in the little insert map Le Monde shows that it is using a pre-2006 basemap with Montenegro and Kosovo shown as part of Serbia.

Meanwhile Patrick Meier of iRevolution has made the big time with his Libya Crisis Map becoming a partner of the United Nation's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).  The crisis map features ground-provided information on injuries, engagements, material requests, and much more.  Be sure to check out "the Big Map" for a detailed look.  In the age of instant news the only downside of this site is there is a twenty-four embargo on new posts (however, this is understandable as the information is actually being used by people on the ground).
