To pay the tributes to fallen American servicemen and women, Sean Askay has created an impressive layer on Google Earth that shows you the hometowns and places of death of the more than 5,000 soldiers lost in Afghanistan and Iraq to date. This layer uses over 24,000 placemarks, 6,000 folders, 2,500 screen overlays, and line arcs with over 250,000 vertices, to create a compelling user experience. By making extensive use of Google Earth 5.0's new features, including iframes, CSS and JavaScript support in balloons and time-based navigation, you can now fly to a place and time. With a blend of navigation methods, people can look up information about servicemen and women alphabetically, by age, location or chronology.
