Chart of Iraqi war deaths

In this chart, each pixel represents an Iraq war death during the past six years.  The blue pixels represent American and coalition troops and the green pixels represent Iraqi allies; the grey pixels represent the anti-U.S. forces.  The orange pixels are civilians.  The left chart separates them by color; the right chart puts them in order of the date of death, running from left to right and then top to bottom.

This chart was made late in 2010 by Kamel Makhloufi, a graphic designer in Quebec, using data published by The Guardian from Wikileaks.  As he notes, all the green pixels, orange pixels and grey pixels are Iraqi deaths; American deaths are limited to the slim blue strip at the top.  Click on Flickr for details.  Click on Melka for his portfolio.
