Mapping the Gaza-Israel War

BY Lisa Goldman | Tuesday, November 20 2012

As the current Gaza-Israel military conflict enters its seventh day, there are two informative interactive maps have available for those interested in a visualization of the social media data from the area.

The Palestine Crisis Map is based on crowd sourced data and covers a variety of aspects of violence in the occupied territories, both the West Bank and Gaza. Naturally, there has been a significant uptick in the information submitted from Gaza over the past few days.

Aljazeera English has created a detailed map specifically for this military conflict. As in the case of the Palestine Crisi map, it aggregates social media data on the Ushahidi platform. AJE's map has a comprehensive list of clickable, sortable categories that range from Israeli deaths and Palestinian deaths to Palestinian tweets and Israeli tweets.
