The Hidden Life of Guns is an investigation done by the Washington Post which heavily relies on computer-assisted reporting. In one of their main segments, Police Officers Killed by Guns, is a program completely created with computer related programs.
The website features an interactive map of the United States and features red dots correlating to police officers killed in different states. By clicking on one of the red dots, an information box appeared with the name of the officer, the location and the date. Even more in-depth, it also states the type of weapon they were murdered with, as well as what situation they were murdered in. None of this could have been created without the use of computer-assisted resources.
