The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) was established in 1923 to commemorate U.S. armed forces where they have served overseas since 1917, and within the U.S. when directed by public law. ABMC projects strive to tell accurate accounts of America at war through interactive battle maps, oral histories, soldier databases, and exhibits at U.S. military visitor centers around the world. 

The educational websites BWCO Co. developed in partnership with Dog Green Productions follows the Normandy Campaign from D-Day through the Liberation of Paris. The interactive kiosk is an important component of the Normandy Visitor Center in Colleville-sur-Mer, France. This map-based, interactive experience helps users to understand the advancing movement of troups and about the military units who were present at D-Day and subsequent events. Videos, stills, animation, and a zoomable map come together to make this experience feel hands-on.

The Battle of Pointe du Hoc is an interactive combat narrative about a heroic and crucial part of the Normandy invasion. The website acts as a companion to a visitor center at the Pointe du Hoc battlefield location in France. Interstitial videos, an interactive map, animations, and zoomable stills come together to make this an immersive experience, allowing users complete control over their pathway through this battle story.
