London During The Blitz/ An Interactive Map
In an effort to find and read everything I can about my new city, I stumbled across the most amazing website. Bombsight is a project funded by JISC, the National Archives and the University of Portsmouth and provides an interactive and stunningly visual map of every bomb that fell on London during an 8 month period of the Blitz (October 1940 to June 1941).
Here are a few screenshots to give you an idea of the devastation inflicted on the city. Each red marker represents at least one bomb.
Users can zoom in to an address or particular location to view markers that represent the number and type of bomb dropped. To view the fully interactive version of Bombsight, go here.
