Darfur crisis: mapping destruction

Don Thieme's Life Cycle Analysis blog brought a powerful project publicising the crisis in Sudan to my attention; it's a multimedia collaboration between the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Google Earth, under the broader Genocide Prevention Mapping Initiative, which is mapping the destruction of community.

The "Crisis in Darfur" project 'has brought together compelling visual evidence of the destruction in Darfur', so that you can:
See more than 1,600 villages that have been damaged or completely destroyed. Zoom to more than 133,000 homes, schools, mosques and other buildings burned to the ground.
