Exploratory Analysis Platform for Attacks Against Aid Workers
Keshif created powerful dashboards for interactive visual analytics and exploration of violent attacks against aid workers using the Aid Worker Security Database. Our technical design for visual analytics advances the public presentation and in-depth analysis of this important incident database.
Data from Humanitarian Outcomes,
The AWSD dataset* provides an empirical foundation for analysis of the changing security environment for civilian aid operations worldwide. Using our advanced dashboards, conflict and policy analysts can easily track trends, identify key personnel threats, locate geographic hotspots, and perform in-depth analysis and discovery of the data. The dataset has been used to publish various research and public media articles, including Keshif’s analysis published at the Africa Portal.
