Bombing Missions of the Vietnam War by Cooper Thomas

This map, created using the U.S. Department of Defense's THOR dataset, shows every recorded bombing mission of the Vietnam War. Each mission is plotted as a single semi-transparent point. Individually, each point is almost imperceptible, but collectively, they highlight the transportation networks and cities that were targeted by allied planes. An inset map presents generalized geographic trends, while a time series chart reveals temporal patterns in the data.
