Armed Conflict Mapped Over Time and Location

Ralph Sundberg, a Ph.D. Candidate and Project Manager  at the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP), manages the UCDP Georeferenced Event Dataset (GED) - an effort he began in 2009 to make reliable, geographically and temporally disaggregated data available to scholars of armed conflict.  

The project’s first phase aggregates annual data from the 1989-2010 time period into three categories of organised violence: state-based armed conflict, non-state conflict and one-sided violence. 

Take a look at this short video of organized violence in 1989-2010.  Based on the GED, is shows conflict events mapped over time and space.
