We recently posted static visualizations demonstrating the breadth and intensity of the crisis in Iraq. Today we're combining that work in an interactive map.

The map shows the relative level of violence as reported on social media while ISIS ramped up its activity through the month of June. This data serves as a backdrop for Syrian refugee and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) data sourced from the UN.

Thanks to REACH Initiative for suggesting that we publish an interactive map. If you have ideas or suggestions about how you'd like to see the CrisisNET platform used, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
