Meteorite fireballs witnessed from 1913. I’m not sure what is gained by putting this on a map. Also, since this is just eyewitness accounts, it suffers from population density bias.

It might be biased by the ability of locals to record and report sightings, but it’s a map of sightings, not total strikes, so population density isn’t really a bias, it’s essential to the data.
