The Drone Attack Map

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has released an interactive map of United States drone attacks on Pakistan. The Bureau maintains a database of US drone attacks on Pakistan, which began in 2004 and continue to this day.

The Where the Drones Strike map shows the locations of all US drone strikes in Pakistan, the nature of each target hit and the number of casualties of each drone attack. You can use the timeline at the bottom of the map to view the strikes made in each month since 2004.

You can also use the forward and back arrows in the map sidebar to view different filtered views of the drone strikes. These include a mapped visualization of all the drone strike and a view of all the strikes that caused civilian casualties.

The reported locations of drone strikes are sometimes only given as a specific town or district therefore some of the mapped locations are imprecise.
