I'm a data scientist and geographer interested in promoting critical thinking by making publicly available information accessible and compelling through maps and visualizations. Currently, I am focused on mapping the global arms trade, building off of my map The United States of Arms: International Arms Transfers Exported by the U.S. from 1950 to 2017, which has received over five million views. I intend to create similar maps for other arms-exporting nations and include other datasets, such as armed conflict events, war casualties, oil exports. This will require a major time investment to do properly and I appreciate any support that you can give.
Goals
$34 of $50 per month
When I reach $50 per month, I'll create arms trade maps for the top ten arms exporting countries: USA, Russia, Germany, France, China, UK, Israel, Italy, South Korea and the Ukraine.
