Visualizing 10 years of Murders in Philadelphia
Using a database of homicides compiled by Washington Post, I designed the website and created the map as a project for the Lede program at Columbia Graduate School of Journalism
 Over the last 10 years, Philly has had an average of around 300 murders per year. While this many murders hardly gives it the title of 'most murderous city,' the fact of the matter is: roughly 18 out of every 100,000 people will be murdered this year in Philadelphia.
