Arr! Here be Pirates! IMB live piracy map 2008 (Kelso)

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Just in time for Halloween: The International Chamber of Commerce has a live Google mashup of global piracy attacks. I discovered this map when helping a colleague at The Washington Post map recent events in the Gulf of Aden and off Somalia. Read this story from The Washington Post with more background on the endemic piracy there. If you dig hard enough, you’ll discover a text file with all the data linked 2 deep in their source code. Their database goes back to 2005.
