Animated Flash map of Iraq war casualties

This animated map of coalition military fatalities during the Iraq war unfolds at ten frames per second. Each frame represents one day of the war. One dot marks each casualty site. A death begins as a white flash, then grows to a larger red dot, which turns black after 30 frames (days), fading at last to permanent grey.

Reader comment: Stuart Matthews says,

I liked the flash animation that you linked to. But it is missing one very important thing: Iraq (military and civilian) casualties.
