The Globe and Mail is using Google Maps to plot some of the quarter million U.S. diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks.

We'd like your help! If you come across any interesting cables relating to Canada or other countries, simply edit this collaborative map.

Here's how: To plot a point, log into your Google/Gmail account in the top right corner, click "Edit" and select and drag the blue placemark tool at the top left of the map to the most relevant location. Fill in the title field with the year of the cable and a short descriptive headline. Then add a few sentences describing the cable. If possible, use the rich text editing option to add a link to the actual cable from wikileaks.org. Click "OK," then "Save" and then "Done".

Click here to edit the map.
