Data has been released (leaked) to Wikileaks, which contains information regarding engagements that have occured during the Afghan war. I’ve produced a visualisation, showing which of these engagements involved a friendly/civilian/enemy being killed in action [KIA]
These make up a smaller proportion of the data than one first might expect, but are still significant [other incidents may involve arrests, IED detection, engagements that didn't result in a KIA].
This is a map of Afghanistan, showing the regions the incidents occured (by colour), the size of the mark denotes the scale of the KIA count, whilst the shape of the mark shows who the attack was on.
Take a look at it ‘full screen’ for more ease of use, hovering over individual points will give you some details, as well as the fact you can filter by how many people were killed in the incident, and filter down to what type of incident.
Some other more detailed analysis was conducted by the Guardian (amongst others), who had pre-release access to the data. Further information on the data can be found on Wikileaks – Afgham War Diary. This visualisation was created using Tableau Desktop, and published to Tableau Public.Tags: afghan war diaries, afghan war visualisation, afghanistan, data visualisation, kia, killed in action, tablea public, tableau desktop, wikileaks

It seems like a while ago, but I did a talk on Online Community Management, and discussed my experiences with dealing with internet communities.
The presentation is available here:
It’s all a bit brief, and it’s a subject I’m passionate about, so if you are interested just email me email@example.com
An audio feed was also available which I’ll try and find where I saved that!Tags: internet forums, online communities, online community management
