The Detroit Murder Map
The Detroit Free Press' Living with Murder Map plots the 3,184 lives lost to homicide in Detroit between 2003 and June 2011.
Each marker on the map represents a homicide victim. If you click on a marker you can view where, when and how the homicide happened. The map is searchable by year and beneath the map a list of the homicide victims is sortable by column heading. If you select a homicide victim from the list view the corresponding map marker is highlighted on the map.
As well as the map view the Detroit Free Press have created a series of graphs that explore the race, gender and chronology of Detroit's homicides.
