5-27-13The employees of GISetc appreciate and support the service of our American military. In honor of Memorial Day this week, we are highlighting a week of geospatial links about our service men and women.

This staggering map catalogs the locations of the deaths of our military in the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and compares them side by side with maps of their hometowns. Scroll over the map to see the names of those that gave their lives for our country and to remember their sacrifice.

At GISetc.com we curate and bring you the best geography and science resources from the web. We hope our sharing will keep you up to date on the latest science and geospatial news.
