Interactive map puts web users in the thick of the US Capitol riot

The interactive map features videos published on the social network Parler during the Capitol Hill riots on Jan 6. — AFP Relaxnews

A developer has created an interactive map of the Capitol Hill insurrection, which took place in Washington DC, Jan 6, drawing on data from the conservative “free speech” social network, “Parler”. The map could help the FBI in its efforts to locate and identify the instigators of the riot.

Each red dot on the map corresponds to a video recorded at that location. On this interactive map – made by a developer going by the pseudonym, Patr10tic – web users can see videos of the Capitol Hill riot published on the social network, Parler. It is the first platform of its kind, giving anyone and everyone an overview of the events of Jan 6 in Washington in an immersive way, reports Motherboard.
