Visualizing Drone Strikes in Pakistan

November 10, 2016

For our final data visualization project, my group has decided to create a visualization of US drone strikes in the greater middle east. The FBI has collected a lovely dataset on drone strikes since 2004, compiling targets, time of day, casualties, and infrastructure damage. We even have the number of civilian casualties to go with military deaths.

We intend on creating a scatter plot overlay on top of Pakistan, outlining groupings of drone strikes. Further coloring and categorization will allow us to show were drone strikes were particularly devastating, or if certain parameters lead to a particularly ‘effective’ drone strike.

Should be interesting.
