Corda Technologies Inc. of Lindon, Utah, is offering a free online Troop Tracker for families of military personnel.
The map of Iraq and surrounding countries, at www.corda.com/trooptracker
, shows the locations of coalition and Iraqi forces, as well as the status of oil fields and number of sorties flown. The online map uses Corda's OptiMap 5.0 and PopChart display software. Visitors can move a cursor over icons to read pop-up text and view photos.
The company populates the map with data from unclassified news sources such as TV news and other media outlets. Troop Tracker is updated at least three times a day, Corda officials said.
