Iraq and Afghanistan casualities, home and away

Posted to Maps  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

In a collaboration between CNN and Stamen Design, Home and Away offers a sobering view into casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, since 2001.

On the left is a map that shows hometown locations, and on the right is a map of casualty locations. The two maps are linked such that you see where people are from and where they served. Linked filters on the bottom show distributions of age, location, and date. Select or search for an individual to see further details. Friends and family are also able to submit fond memories of fallen loved ones.

Altogether, the interactive provides a connection between the data and the people behind it. See the full piece on CNN.
