Anatomy of terror

In the decade since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, acts of terrorism have been increasingly on the public's radar. The National Counterterrorism Center, a U.S. government agency, compiles data on incidents around the world that fall under the rubric of terrorism. Using the interactive charts and graphs below, you can explore the nature and impact of nearly 80,000 incidents that the centre has tracked between 2004 and 2010.

For an explanation of how data was collected and incidents analyzed, see the centre's disclaimer and an explanation of the methodology behind its Worldwide Incidents Tracking System (WITS).
