Rapes in Germany 2018
Exploration of form, color, and ordering principles to make connections visible in more significant amounts of data. The result is a programmed, clickable prototype.
At the beginning of the project, the task was to find a suitable data set. During the research, I came across the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) website, which prepares various data sets on police crime statistics filtered according to individual parameters in tables. These statistics list all crimes in Germany between 2011 and 2020. Ultimately, I decided on the offense "Rape, sexual assault and sexual assault in a severe case, including death §§ 177, 178 StGB". The topic's time-relevant explosiveness and the data's diversity led to the decision to visualize this data set.
