Modern Piracy Map

Here is an interesting Google maps mashup. It's a map of pirate attacks from 2006. The data comes from the IMB piracy reporting center. Looks like Indonesia and Bangladesh aren't safe places to go boating. Follow the link below to check it out yourself. You can click on each marker on the map to see details about the attack or attempted attack. Pretty cool mashup. This is the kind of thing that the Google maps API is really useful for.
