How have you used or intend on using this resource?

I haven't used this resource yet, however I can see it would be a useful tool to show the development of an event or conflict. 

Why would you recommend it to other people?

It seems like an easy way to tell the narrative of a complicated event, in a manner which will be more easily digestible to audiences. I like the way the interface integrates the timeline visual with the map data, which is shown as both a large, close up of Google maps and a smaller, zoomed out version of the map.
