As you may already know, Troy Davis, an inmate in the Georgia penitentiary was executed Wednesday evening after Supreme Court rejected the stay of execution.

We wanted to get a snapshot of which states have execution laws and how many people they've executed in the last few years. In the process, we put together a map to visualize the data.

We designed the map using TileMill, Google Charts to show the charts and Google Refine to clean up the raw data.

Amnesty USA has a list of scheduled executions in the U.S.
