More Background About Crisis Mapped Website

Crisis Mapped was born from the need to find more information about crises as they were happening.

Currently, there are three main categories of crisis - Active, Watched and Retired. Active are currently ongoing crises, Watched are crises-in-the-making or semi-resolved, and Retired are crises which have some data but no longer have current data collected by our CrisisWatcher Program.

The "old" data in the database was collected when we were running the proof-of-concept version of this website which has been upgraded and added to to produce the version you now see here.

If you have any ideas for inclusion, please get in touch and we will try to find a way to add your feature to the website. If you are researching any of these crises, we would like to hear from you and may be able to help with providing a list of URLs etc.
