Every world Battle ever in one map

Nodegoat managed to visualize a great part of the 8,049 battles that have taken place across the world, on a mapped timeline, according to the Wikipedia sorrowful history of the human race.

Take a look at the Nodegoat world battle map.

Unfortunately not all of those battles have been given a location and a start & end date in their Wikipedia entries. After downloading and checking all the Wikipedia data Nodegoat was left with 2,657 battles which it could both geo-code and date.
