Mapping Globalization Project

Princeton University and the University of Washington have a joint project going called the Mapping Globalization Project, which uses maps, narratives, and other data to look at some of the aspects of globalization, including global trade networks and migration.

One of the main components of the project is the use of NetMap Analytics to explore “ways to visualize international trade as a network. Network maps can often seem like nothing more than random lines, but using the technology developed by NetMap Analytics, we have developed some techniques for exploring contemporary trade visually.”

The site is organized as a wiki, with links to the maps and other data analyses that make up the Mapping Globalization Project.
