There's a sense the significance of the conflict in Northern Ireland & the importance of protecting the peace has been lost in #Brexit drama.

So the #BrexitBorderlands project set out to chronicle the Troubles in a new way - interactive data visualisaiton.

Thread on data here:
This is every death over 30 years of The Troubles visualised.

The tool is weepeople.css by @ProPublica and the data is from Post-Mortem, a database of deaths by Michael McKeown, hosted by @UlsterCAIN.

Read 'The Irish Times - Keeping The Peace' here:

Deaths are listed chronologically with a shadow to represent every single person who died in 30 years of the Troubles

Click on a figure to find out the individual's name and how, where and when they died.
