According to annual terrorist attacks data, ISIS has claimed responsibility for the largest number of terrorism attacks in the world this year, as shown by an interactive map.

Created by Esri Story Maps and PeaceTech Lab, it shows that Islamic State has has claimed responsibility for most of the attacks so far on the map – 140 in total – while a group listed as ‘other’, such as lone wolves, closely follow behind with 130 attacks.

ISIS is responsible for 1,180 deaths so far this year, with the total number of deaths being 2,835 by 1pm on May 6.

 A Story Map was created using Esri’s Story Maps tool, which enables users to combine authoritative map visualisations with narrative text, images, and multimedia content to tell a story.
