Visualizing the Flow of Refugees

by Joshua New
Refugee flows

The Community Robotics, Education and Technology Empowerment (CREATE) Lab and Carnegie Mellon University has developed a data visualization illustrating the flows of refugees around the world from 2000 to 2015. The visualization represents refugees as color coded dots, with each red dot representing 17 refugees arriving in a country, and each yellow dot representing 17 refugees fleeing a country, flowing in a timelapse. Users can zoom in on areas with significant refugee migrations, such as Liberia in 2002 or Syria since 2011, and the visualization provides a description of the major geopolitical events contributing to the high number of refugees.

Take a look.
