metaLAB Releases “Their Names” Visualization

Project visualizes the names of over 28,000 fatal encounters with police

metaLAB released Their Names, a visualization of the names of over 28,000 fatal encounters with police nationwide, from 2000 until the death of George Floyd. It is based on the Fatal Encounters dataset.

“It treats the victims as individual persons, highlighting the often sad and disturbing stories behind each datapoint,” explain creators Kim Albrecht and Matthew Battles in their mission statement for the project.
