Gaza Everywhere

Thanks to Tony Cassidy for the lead to this map application which overlays the outline of Gaza onto a location of your choice.
This highlights the small area within Gaza: one of the most densely populated parts of the planet, and the difficulty of finding safe places away from the bombing.

This use of mapping to reinforce the scale of locations that are being studied was used earlier in the BBC's Dimensions site.
