Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Maps
Maps - List of Map Sets

Introduction

This page contains a list, with details of the various formats, of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) maps that have been produced as part of the AHRC 'Visualising the Conflict' Project.

All maps were compiled and prepared by Luke Kelleher, then a Research Associate (GIS) working with CAIN. There are 24 categories of maps, listed below, with links to separate Web pages where the individual maps are listed (202 maps in total). All maps were sized A4 (approximately). GIS software was used to produce TIFF versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) which are available on request. Three versions of each map have been made available below:

  • PDF versions (A4 approx; 300dpi) are based on original TIFF files.
  • L-JPG versions (approx. 1000px700p; 72dpi) are low resolution JPEG images.
  • H-JPG versions (approx. A4; 300dpi) are high resolution JPEG images.

The maps relate to deaths due to the conflict and also physical memorials to the conflict. The information on deaths is taken (with permission) from Malcolm Sutton's Index of Deaths. The information on commemoration comes from the database of physical memorials.

In addition to the 'static' maps a number of animations have also been prepared. These animations are made up of a number of maps, which are shown sequentially with a short time delay, and are designed to highlight, for example, changes over time. The animations are based on GIFF (.gif) images and have been set to play once. They can be replayed on most Web browsers by either reloading the image or clicking on the link a second time.
