Welcome to the Global Terrorism Database (GTD) in Palantir.

The GTD is an open-source database of terrorist events around the world from 1970 through 2011. Managed by the START consortium at the University of Maryland, the GTD will be regularly updated in the future.

The GTD now includes approximately 105,000 terrorist incidents, which can now be explored in the Palantir platform.

For more information, including the Codebook and history of GTD, see: http://www.start.umd.edu/gtd/
