A system for compiling public information on security forces with a goal of aiding journalists, human rights groups, litigators and others to hold security forces accountable.

DataMade built and maintains an open source data entry and management tool for collecting organizations, events and persons associated with security forces around the world, sourced from news articles.

We built a powerful API for aggregating and exposing this data for use by the front end interface (pictured) built by Canadian data visualization company FFunction.
