Interactive Map: Every Philly Murder in the Last Decade

We’d call this City Paper/Axis Philly collaboration a “cool map,” but it seems insensitive. At the very least, it’s an extremely useful documentation of every murder and shooting that’s occurred in the past decade in Philadelphia. Here’s the map for 2013, so far. (It extends beyond the Center City area, of course.)

The maps were created in concert with City Paper‘s deeply reported two-part series on murder in Philadelphia, the second of which was published today. Part One. Part Two.
