Data Science in Action: Visualizing Death in Armed Conflict from 1946–2008

Our Big Data analytics engine brought to life over 33 million data points measuring world-wide deaths in armed conflict from 1946 until 2008, a project spanning over 60 years of data. Our beautiful, seamless, and interactive visualization enabled a level of understanding, discovery, and insight that was previously unknown. This process of taking nearly impenetrable volumes of historic data, and brings them to life in a very intuitive and user-friendly way, creating an easily decipherable and exciting narrative many Big Data providers would envy.
