'Remembering': Victims, Survivors and Commemoration
Deaths - DRAFT Google Map and Street View
map development by Julio Lopez Losada (2011)
The following DRAFT Google map can display overlaid information on
deaths related to the Northern Ireland conflict. Due to the large number of deaths, the map begins 'blank' (no pointers are displayed). For an area quick zoom, click on one of the tabs at the top of the map. Next go to the legend below the map
and select particular categories of deaths to be
displayed. Below the legend is the closest Street View to the point the victim died.
At the bottom of the page are some Additonal Notes about using the Google Map.
Important: Before using this Google Map for the first time, please read the NOTE
- Rolling over the map icons displays basic information. It is then possible to click on an icon for further information.
- In the case of a single victim rolling over an icon will show: a thumbnail photograph if available; the name of the victim, the age and date of death. If the user then clicks on the icon the information about the victim contained in the CAIN database is displayed in a new browser window.
- Where two or more victims have died at exactly the same location, then a list appears when a users rolls over the icons. The user then has a first option to click on one of the items on the list to get further information. Alternatively, the second option is to click on the icon and information for each item on the list will appear in separate windows.
- Where two or more victims have died closely together but not in the exact same location, and they have been given separate location coordinates, the icons will sit one on top of the other. Zooming to the largest scale may help to resolve the icons.
