What it is
Mapping Police Killings is an application that allows for user exploration of officer-involved deaths across any US city or state. It leverages data from Mapping Police Violence and visualizes shootings in a geographic area using a force-directed graph built in D3. Users are able to filter by city or state, and upon initail selection, they are able to group by a variety of victim characteristics, such as age, race, armed status, or cause of death.
The application is featured on the Mapping Police Violence homepage. It is seen by thousands of visitors on a daily basis.
