JumpStart Georgia, an NGO which applies open-source technologies to open up public data has launched a new project called is a collection of news and data that is brought to you visually; The website calls all interested individuals to share their own visuals or ideas. So far JumpStart has posted two infographics about the death rate in Georgian penitentiary system. Information is based on an annual report presented by the Public Defender’s office of Georgia. According to the data 653 inmates died in the period 2006-2011, 1/3 of them because of tuberculosis.




  1. How are you automating a difference in Georgia state of US prisons and the country? I was recently looking- the state of GA in the us has had a lot of murders lately and when trying to track data, I found a lot of people scraping news sources were getting the country of Georgia all mixed in with the state of Georgia stats. I was wondering if this was a problem that you had already solved. Thank you.
