Unlike the high quality maps of the protests in Cairo, Egypt or the numerous maps of the Libyan civil war, there are very few maps being updated showing the protests in Syria.  The Syrian protests lack maps and those maps that do exist are rarely updated.

Now Lebanon, a pro-March 14 news website, has detailed daily updates on the protests including location of events both big and small.  They pull from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs, and professional news sources.  On some days, like September 2, they create Google Maps mashup showing the day's events.

The Wall Street Journal has a map and links to new stories from mid-April up to July 8.

Normally fantastic al Jazeera has a map that was updated in July displaying Syrian map videos of the protests and their fallout.

Syria Unrest 2011 has a crowdmap which by far would be the best map of unrest but it suffers from lack of users.  There seems to be only five Syrians updating the map.
