To use this map, simply pan and zoom through the area and click on each point. Each point is color-coded depending on the nature of the event. For example, gray is for accidents, dark blue for Afghan friendly fire, light blue for coalition friendly fire, red for civilian casualties, and gold for demonstration or unrest. Clicking on each point gives you a summary of the event plus the date and time of occurrence.
You can also read the full log entries for each event. the log includes a full summary, casualties, event category, event type, and more. The War Logs is based on Google Maps.
