Automatically extracting bomb drops from the Blitz Bomb Census maps

I just finished Blackout by Connie Willis and I was wondering where she did get all the exact times when the air raids of The Blitz were happening. I am curious because I was thinking that a timeline map would give a visual effect of the huge destruction and hard times the Londoners had to go through…so I googled for it and found the following: a nice research blog which uses the Blitz Bomb Census from The National Archivesa blog entry from the Guardian about the first day - and data - of the Blitz over London.
