The Bomb Sight project takes the original London WW2 bomb census maps, with a breakdown of the first day and first week of the Blitz, previously only available for viewing in The Reading Room at the National Archives, and plots them on an interactive map for casual exploration (and awe). If you zoom far enough in you are able to click the individual bomb points for some more information, including remembrances of locals from the area.
