Strange Maps has uncovered this image from the SFGate that shows the number of suicides that have taken place on the Golden Gate Bridge based on the location of the jumper. The Golden Gate Bridge is divided up into 128 poles with even-numbered poles on the West side of bridge (where there is a bike path) and odd-numbered poles on the East side (where there is a pedestrian walkway).

From the image above, one would conclude that pole 69 is the place where the most suicides take place, presumably because it is the highest point on the bridge and thus the furthest distance down to the water.

A sad infographic indeed, and one that definitely makes me think of the documentary The Bridge which I saw earlier on this year.
