The level of detail contained in the Iraq war logs gives a unique perspective on the war: for the first time, it is possible to see the exact location of every incident in Baghdad.
The graphic below paints a devastating picture of Baghdad during the past six years, with no street free of deaths from torture, sectarian murder and improvised explosive devices.
During the period covered by the leak (2004 to 2009), the US reports reveal how 45,497 people lost their lives: 34,391 were civilians, 4,374 worked for the Iraqi army or police, 1,061 for the coalition and 5,121 were classed as insurgents.
The data in the video is based on the US death totals for the MND-Baghdad division of Iraq.
