This visualization uses the GDELT EVENT Dataset from the GDELT Project to create a heatmap visualization of global events monitored by GDELT that matched a set of search criteria. You can also download the underlying CSV file to load the coordinates into a GIS package for further visualization and analysis.
Use the sliderbar in the upper left of this visualization to adjust the display threshold for the visualization - this effects the number of namesets/articles a location must have before it is displayed.
The search criteria used to construct this heatmap:
Start Date = 01/01/2014 End Date = Actor1 Country: Actor1 Type: Actor2 Country: Actor2 Type: CVL Event Code: Event Quad Class: 4 Event Country: Weighting: NUMEVENTS
Create your own GDELT EVENT heatmap visualization using the GDELT Analytics Service.
