The Fate Of Titanic Passengers Revealed On Interactive Map

The Fate Of Titanic Passengers Revealed On Interactive Map

The hometown, class and survival of the 1,317 people on board is mapped to help people find out about the individuals on board.

Mapping software company ESRI has compiled an interactive map that shows the hometown, class and fate of the 1,317 passengers on the Titanic. 817 passengers died when the ship struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic a century ago and sank. The educational story map shows the route of the voyage and the locations where the travelers came from. Most came from New York and the UK, but there were others from as far as India, China and Japan.

The map can also be used to sort the passengers by class. Immigrants comprised most of the third class passengers (who suffered the highest fatality rate), many of whom began their journeys in Ireland, Scandinavia, and Lebanon.

The interactive map allows people to find out about each passenger’s individual story. By clicking on Poland, we can learn about third class passenger Berk Pickard who was 32 and from Warsaw. Pickard boarded in Southampton, England, and intended to settle in San Francisco. He survived after being rescued by lifeboat no.8.
