Data analysis of military operations


The ‘Australia’s Vietnam War’ website project aims to create a web-based, interactive visualisation of Australia’s (and New Zealand’s) involvement in the Vietnam War. The website ( currently shows approximately 6,500 ground combat incidents involving the Australian Army. Further research is underway to add combat data about Royal Australian Air Force and Royal Australian Navy operations. Other research will add biographical information on all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died during the campaign, Australian Civil Affairs projects and social structure of each of the villages in the Australian Area of Operations. Related research includes work on US combat operations in Vietnam and assistance to Vietnam in identifying the burial sites and other details relating to those of their soldiers who died as a result of battle with Australian and New Zealand forces.
