This visualization is based on actual data from refugees fleeing war and prosecution. This is the actual positions, pictures, videos and messages they sent to volunteers for the trip across the Mediterranean to be as safe as possible.
We have selected a number of trips out of our data to illustrate how the conversations, routes and other conditions can look.
The visualization is being expanded continuously and updated with more boats.
In this material, we have excluded a boat with a very special story. The story of the boat 370 is instead a book, published by Norstedts in early 2017.
