The Serial Podcast Map

Sarah Koenig's Serial podcast investigating the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee and the prosecution of her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed proved incredibly popular last year.

Analytics.io's Serial map explores some of the important locations in the case and in the evidence, interviews and testimonies of the main protagonists in this tragic event. The map includes a timeline of important events on the day of the murder, January 13, 1999. The events in the timeline are separated into different categories relating to the defendant and the key witness in the case, Jay Wilds.

If you select an hour from the timeline then the important events from that hour are added to the map sidebar. If you select an event from the map sidebar you can then view the location highlighted on the map.

The Serial map on its own does not explain the full events of the day of Hae Min Lee's murder but provides an excellent accompaniment to anyone who has followed the Serial Podcast. The map helps to contextualize the times and key locations in the events of January 13, 1999 in Baltimore.
