|As of today, in cooperation with the US Holocaust Museum, Google Earth is now mapping world atrocities to bring more attention to them and provide a forum for education. They are starting with Darfur.
There are 200 million registered users of Google Earth. This has to be one of the most powerful, useful tools ever developed. Well done Google. Well done.
More than 1,600 damaged and destroyed villages will be visible, as will the remnants of more than 100,000 homes, schools, mosques and other structures destroyed by the Janjaweed militia and Sudanese forces.
The Holocaust museum also has compiled a collection of photos, data and eyewitness testimony from its archives and number of sources, including the U.S. State Department, nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations and individual photographers. That material also will be available when Google Earth users visit the Darfur site.
