HURI’s MAPA Project Travels the World
- Created: May 22, 2017
HURI’s MAPA team—which includes Kostyantyn Bondarenko (MAPA Project Director), Serhii Plokhii (MAPA Project Faculty Director), and Viktoria Sereda (MAPA Project Research Fellow)—added a new project to the MAPA website. The History and Identity webmap takes survey data to depict historical memory and identity in contemporary Ukraine. This webmap is unique in that it has data down to the oblast level, overcoming the limitations of macro-region divisions, and it allows users to present data in chart form over the maps, rather than just representing data by shading the regions.
This year, the MAPA program has been presented around the world at conferences and academic events. The team showed audiences how to use MAPA, offered their analyses based on the data, and used MAPA to visually depict information in research presentations.
