A global map of terrorist attacks, 2010-2014

This map (large version can be accessed by clicking below) was made again using the Global Terrorism Database and Plotly, mapping terrorist attacks by the number of casualties until 2014 (before Paris and Brussels). The size of the bubbles corresponds to the number of people killed. Even if terrorist attacks in Europe of course leave a much bigger impression in our news media outlets, the great bulk of deaths happen in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Pakistan) and Africa. Other prominent areas where attacks are committed include the Philippines, Colombia and India, which I personally haven’t heard much about.
