I spent most of the week thinking about how somebody — anybody — needed to start mapping relationships around the events of February.
And lo and behold thanks to an anonymous leaker on Wikileaks, we have access to the amazing mapping of relationships that investigators generated. Unfortunately we do not know what the timeframe for this data is.
One thing that immediately becomes apparent is that Alfredo, Salsinha and Paulo Remedios are were all important nodes in this social network. Some names are notorious and expected: Rai-los, Hercules, Angie Pires. Others less so! So much Googling to do, and so little time…
This mapping almost merits a special entry on Visual Complexity, a new favorite site of mine. Perhaps with a little programming help, investigators could visualize this information in an even more dramatic and dynamic fashion.
