Persecution of Christians Over Time

This map uses big data from the GDELT Project which monitors local media around the world and live-translates it from 65 languages, along with Google’s BigQuery and Carto mapping software to visualize potential locations of persecution of Christians around the world. The red dots represent the flares of Christian persecution mentioned in the news media. The blue dots represent the mention of Christian refugees. Note that the “mentioning location” does not always mean the location where the event occurred.  

Each blue dot provides detailed information about the event and a link to the online news article that mentions the event.
