Wikileaks Attack Data by Year and Type Projected on Afghanistan Regional Map

Below is a visualization of the Wikileaks data produced in collaboration with Michael Dewar. This plot shows attacks in the data set by year and type, projected onto a map of Afghanistan with district boundaries.


This visualization is certainly not perfect, i.e., some colors are difficult to discern, but it does provide added insight to the level and location of fighting over six years o the war represented by the data.

R code available here.
